If Ronaldo has his way, the Real Madrid star’s son will follow in his footsteps.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s six-year-old son has already been marked as a future footballer by his famous father, who believes Ronaldo Jr. has the same athletic characteristics.
While he is keen to avoid being a pushy parent by allowing his son to follow his own destiny, the 2016 Balon d’Or winner and Madrid’s all-time leading goalscorer wants His Son to play as a striker, should he take up the sport.
“Of course I want my son to be a footballer like his daddy,” Ronaldo told Egyptian channel ON E TV in an interview.
“I know it’s a big challenge, it’s not easy. But he will be whatever he wants, I won’t pressure Him.
“I will push him a little bit to be a football player. Not a goalkeeper, I want him to be a striker.
“But he will be whatever he wants to be. I’m not worried.”
