Ghana winger Osman Bukari has denied claims that his celebration in the Black Stars 3-2 defeat to Portugal was to disrespect former Real Madrid and Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Red Star Belgrade attacker performed the famous ‘Suii’ celebration of Ronaldo after scoring in 2022 World Cup opening games at the Stadium 974.
Ronaldo had already performed his signature move, after scoring a controversial spot-kick on the 65th minute which was later levelled by Andre Ayew.
However, Atlético Madrid star Joao Felix and Rafael Leao extended the lead for Portugal before Osman Bukari reduced the deficit for Ghana on the 89th minute of the game.
After Bukari’s celebration, Ronaldo on the Portugal bench was seen on camera throwing his hands in the air in frustration.
“I have noticed my celebration today has generated comments claiming I was disrespectful towards Ronaldo This is incorrect. I was overcome by the emotion of the moment of scoring for my country on my World Cup debut leading to my celebration.” Osman Bukari explained on twitter.

This is incorrect. I was overcome by the emotion of the moment of scoring for my country on my World Cup debut leading to my celebration.
My upbringing doesn’t permit me
