Ronaldo Junior was on the Bernabeu pitch on Sunday as part of Real Madrid's celebrations having won the Champions League title the night before, defeating Italian giant Juventus 4-1 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff." Have a look—
Did I mention Cristiano Jr. is a mere 6-years-old?! I mean, talk about having talent in your blood! People are pretty certain that he'll end up following his father's footsteps all the way to the big leagues and at this rate, we wouldn't be surprised!
On top of passing down his A1 soccer skills, Cristiano Ronaldo is most definitely a kickass dad, he has a great work ethic and mentality any son would be fortunate to look up to—"I still learn, but I think it's the best thing in life to have a kid."
Well Ronaldo, your kid has proven to be quite the talent and you should be very proud of yourself for your positive influence! We hope to see Jr. on the field for years to come! Who knows, maybe one day we can see them play a little one on one! Maybe the student will become, or even surpass, the master!!
