Cristiano Ronaldo Jr has been showing that he’s worthy of his dad’s name, by ripping his Manchester United young teammates apart in training.
Ronaldo is one of the greatest players ever to grace a football pitch and has been showing the world what he can do with a ball ever since joining United for the first time in 2003, and beforehand with Sporting.
Whilst the five time Ballon d’Or player is closer to the end of his career than the beginning, at 37-years-old, defenders of the future can’t rest too easy.
Once Ronaldo has retired it’ll nearly be time for his son, Cristiano Jr, to take over the world, and he’s been showing off his own skills.
The young Portuguese star signed for United’s youth academy back in February and a recent video of him shows that he’s got the skills to make it.
The 11-year-old, just a month on from officially joining his father at the Carrington training ground, can be seen getting the better of others in the session.
First he battles with an opponent to win the ball, something fans at Old Trafford might argue his dad doesn’t do enough of these days, before feinting with the ball the ball at his feet to beat the onrushing would be tackler.
He might be some way short of his dad so far, although he’s got quite a while to catch up, Ronaldo Jr definitely has an air of his dad about him, even down to the running style.
In typical fashion for Ronaldo Sr, the former Real Madrid forward has revealed annoyance and worry about his son’s future as a footballer.
Maybe the hunger won’t be quite the same as his dad’s, but then again whose is, but it looks like he has the skills required at least.
