Marcelo's son brilliantly recreated Cristiano Ronaldo's infamous 'siuu' celebration after scoring for the Real Madrid youth team.

After scoring, Enzo, 12, was pictured racing to the corner flag before nailing the now-iconic celebration created by his dad's former teammate. Marcelo was filmed going wild in the stands before moving to a zone behind the seats and dancing after seeing his son net twice in a 6-0 mauling over Liverpool.

The under-12 star is part of Los Blancos' current squad competing at the LaLiga Promises tournament. The esteemed competition is taking place in Gran Canaria and features some of the best youth teams on the planet. The likes of Barcelona, Liverpool and Juventus have all sent squads to compete on the Spanish island.

Keen to follow in his father's footsteps, Enzo is certainly making a name for himself in the youth set-up. His first strike was superbly executed as he bested two Liverpool defenders before blasting a shot into the bottom corner.

And while dad Marcelo was going crazy in the stands there was only one Real Madrid icon Enzo's celebration was going to honour. The 12-year-old expertly reproduced Ronaldo's 'siuu' routine before being mobbed by his team-mates.

Dad, Marcelo, is out of contract at the end of the current campaign but has expressed his desire to continue his 16-year stay at the Bernabeu. The Brazilian veteran holds five La Liga and four Champions League crowns but still has one challenge to overcome.

HAVE YOUR SAY! Should Real Madrid offer Marcelo a new contract? Let us know in the comments section.

Marcelo is keen to extend his stay in order to play alongside Enzo for Los Blancos, although at 33 time is running out. The Rio-born full-back spoke to Marca about the final ambition for his playing career.

He said: "I'm calm. This is my club. I have the idea of playing until my son grows up so that I can play with him, and I want to keep going at a high level. Now we have important matches. I'm the captain of the best team in the world.

"I'm calm and I feel protected. I'm not thinking too far ahead. Everything comes to an end. I'd like to retire here, but it's not up to me to make the decision."
