We should have known that Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. would probably be quite special.
Not every son is blessed with the talent of their dad, but Cristiano Ronaldo’s work ethic was always likely to rub off on his eldest son.
And wouldn’t you know it, he scored four goals on his debut for Juventus’ Under-9s back in September 2018.
Then in December, Cristiano Jr. was seen posing with a trophy that he had won with the youth team.
There may be extra pressure on the youngster to succeed in football but the early signs are positive.
And it seems as though confidence is no problem where the eight-year-old is concerned.
“He says he is going to be better (than me), but I think it’s difficult,” Ronaldo said in an interview with BeIN Sports last year, per the Mail.
CRISTIANO JR. SCORES SEVEN GOALS IN ONE MATCH
Now that would be something.
And the latest reports on Cristiano Jr.’s development are very, very exciting.
Currently playing for Juve’s youth team in a tournament in Madeira, Portugal, his father’s birthplace, he scored seven goals in a game against Maritimo China – in the first half.
The report comes from AS, who claim Cristiano Jr., who wears the No.7 shirt, is ‘showing that he’s a chip off the old block’.
