Ronaldo Jr, the son of Cristiano Ronaldo has joined Manchester United’s academy following their move to England.
According to Mirror, this is early preparation for young Ronaldo to stay in his father’s footsteps after retirement.
Ronaldo Junior showed up at the academy for training together with Nemanja Matic’s son.
The 11-year-old chap is a duplicate of his father’s talent. He showcased great zeal and interest in the game when he was at Juventus Academy.His goal-scoring technique was a sharp contrast to his father who recently returned to United after 12 years in Italian and Spanish leagues.
Ronaldo Jr is a natural No.9 given his set-piece goals in Juve’s U9s. He scored four goals for the Italian side week after tuning nine.
He then scored seven goals in another debacle with CS Maritimo in the first 45 minutes of the game.
Ronaldo in the past exuded confidence in his son taking over from him and doing even better for himself in his football career.
“I hope that Cris, my son, can be like his dad,” he said in the past. He says he is going to be better [than me], but I think it’s difficult.“He is playing for Juventus and adapting really well, it has been easier for him than for me.”
CR7 return to Old Trafford saw him play his first match for the club against Newcastle and scored.
He did not disappoint either when he scored against Bruno’s Magpies in a 4-1 win.
