Federico Chiesa has recently joined Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal celebration after the Portuguese scored the opening goal against Napoli in their last time out. The young Juventus star, who joined Cristiano in doing his trademark jump to celebrate scoring goals insists he couldn’t help but copy the champion’s “contagious” goal celebration and is loving life alongside the superstar.
Chiesa made headlines for mimicking his teammate’s famous trademark jump to celebrate goals last month. The 23-year-old did so again in Juventus’ 2-1 win over Serie A rivals Napoli on Wednesday evening.
In fact, it was Federico Chiesa who assisted Ronaldo for the goal, and it was the fourth time the Italian youngster is doing so this season to help the Portuguese maintain a strong lead in the Serie A top-scoring list.
“The celebration with Ronaldo was the rush of the moment,” Chiesa explained to Sky Sport Italia for joining Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal celebration.
“I copied his excitement. It’s very contagious. It’s fantastic to play with a champion of his caliber who made history.”
Chiesa has been one of Juventus’ standout performers this season. He has supplied 13 goals and 11 assists in 39 appearances in all competitions since joining on loan from Fiorentina last summer.
The Italian added on playing with Ronaldo: “I’m happy to play with champions like that, and I have a fantastic relationship with all of them [his Juventus teammates]. They are all fantastic guys in the group.
