Cristiano Ronaldo has revealed he wants to see his son, Cristiano Jr., follow in his footsteps and become a professional footballer.
Talking to Chinese television channel Zhejiang Satellite TV (via Goal), Ronaldo said:
I want my son to be a player. I am a footballer and I want him to be one too. I think he has something of an athlete about him. He has athletic characteristics. Obviously he is very young, a baby, he's only five, but he loves football. That is a big plus. I have 30 balls at home. He is always with the ball and he loves it.
But I will not force him to be a player because it comes naturally. It has to be his choice. He will be whatever he wants to be, I am not going to push him at all. But obviously I want Cristiano to be a player. A top one, like his dad.
No pressure, then!
