Cristiano Ronaldo Jr., born on June 17, 2010, came into the world through the surrogacy method, and from a young age, he displayed a remarkable passion and talent for the game of football. At home, he is affectionately referred to as “Cristianinho,” which translates to “Little Cristiano,” as he shares many similarities with his father, including the ability to play football.
Ronaldo himself is pleased with this and is ready to support his son’s journey to success. Ronaldo introduced his son to football at a young age, stating, “We’ll see if our son can become a great footballer. He has potential.
He’s fast and good, but that’s not enough. I always taught my son to work hard, just to be successful. I don’t put pressure on him to become a footballer, but I want it to happen,” said Ronaldo.
Cristiano Jr. is provided with the best conditions to develop his skills. He often went to the field to watch his father’s matches, gradually becoming accustomed to the heat on the pitch. Moreover, he has had the opportunity to join the youth teams of top clubs such as Real Madrid, Juventus, and Manchester United, which are leading training centers in Europe.
During his time with Real’s youth team, Ronaldo Jr. showcased a remarkable scoring ability. According to journalist Edu Corpago, during his time in Madrid, Ronaldo Jr. scored 50 goals in 20 matches for the U14 team.
Upon joining Juventus’ youth team, it took him only 23 games to score 58 goals and provide 17 assists. On average, in each game, the young Ronaldo pockets 2-3 goals. Every time he scores, he doesn’t forget to celebrate with the iconic “siuu” chant, which has become his father’s trademark.
Mrs. Dolores, Ronaldo’s mother, admitted that her grandson is even better than CR7 was at the same age.
