Cristiano Jr.


Cristiano Ronaldo Junior, 10, is already on the books at Juventus, so is in a good place to be able to follow his famous father's footsteps into becoming a professional senior player. However, there will be no additional fatherly pressure, should Cristiano Junior decide to take a different path away from the game.

Ronaldo joined Juventus from Real Madrid in July 2018 for a fee of $112 million, and has since scored 34 times in all competitions for the Italian champion.

Nine-year-old Ronaldo Jr. however, who joined the club's academy at the same time, has far eclipsed his famous father's record in front of goal, finding the net an astonishing 58 times in just 28 games.

Adding to that impressive total, he's also provided 18 assists for his "Pulcini Under-9" teammates.

Ronaldo Jr scored four goals on his debut for Juventus in September 2018, according to Tuttosport, and in April, he scored seven in a single half against CS Maritimo, say AS.

Even his dad admits hes been better

Ronaldo Sr's return of 28 goals last season for Juventus was his worst in a decade the last time he tallied fewer than 30 in a single campaign was the 2008-2009 season when he represented Manchester United.

And the Portuguese star admits his son has adapted to life in Turin better than him.

"He is playing for Juventus and adapting really well," the Portugal international told DAZN. "It has been easier for him than for me."

"I hope that [he] can be like his dad. He says he is going to be better, but I think it's difficult."

The 34-year-old's fortunes are back on the up this term having scored six times in just 11 games, including a 96th minute winner against Genoa on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo Jr bagged not one but FOUR goals on his Juventus debut.

That's more goals than his dad for Juventus.

Juventus didn't just secure the services of Cristiano in the summer transfer window but also Cristiano Jr, who left Real Madrid for the Italian outfit like his father.

Ronaldo completed a stunning £100 million transfer to Juventus, with his eight-year old son joining the clubs youth team as well.
