Cristiano Ronaldo Junior is stepping into his father’s shoes as the eldest son of the Portuguese Legend has officially joined Manchester United at the young age of 11. The news first came when Ronaldo’s partner Georgina Rodriguez posted her picture with Cristiano Ronaldo Jr., who’s holding a shirt of Manchester United featuring his father’s name and number 7 on the back. Georgina stated in that post – “Pursuing our dreams together, Mum loves you”.
Officially Joining the Man United Academy
Ronaldo’s eldest son was presented along with Gabriel, who is another talented youngster having more than 30,000 followers on Instagram even before making it to the senior team. A few days back, CR7 posted some photos of him training with his son, who wore a Manchester United training top.
This is indeed a great thing for Ronaldo to see, as there are very few footballers, whose children come to the same field as their fathers’ and also come to the same club under their father’s reign. It is expected that Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. will better his game more, develop gradually and make his debut in the senior team at the right time.
Cristiano Ronaldo in this regard
2 years back, Ronaldo was uncertain whether his eldest son will be able to pursue a career in football or not, due to his nutritional preferences. At that time, he said to the Global Soccer Awards Academy that he would see if his son becomes a great footballer or not, but he’s not there yet.
Ronaldo added that sometimes his son drinks Fanta and Coca-Cola and also has some crisps, and he is also aware of the fact that his father doesn’t like it. Sometimes he tells his son to take a dip in the cold water to recover after running on the treadmill.
