Cristiano Ronaldo Jr is a chip off the old block with video footage showing his talents for the Juventus youth team.
“I hope that Cris, my son, can be like his dad,” Cristiano Ronaldo Sr said in 2018. “He says he is going to be better (than me), but I think it’s difficult.”
To be fair, Ronaldo is perhaps the greatest of all-time and one that may never be surpassed in terms of individual and team accolades.
But while it would be unfair to weigh a 10-year-old Cristiano Jr down with any expectations, or by comparing him to his illustrious father already, you can’t deny the kid has got talent.

It was reported last year, in fact, that Cristiano Jr had already provided 58 goals and 18 assists in 28 games for the Juventus U-9 side according to Football Talent Scout. Although Juve have given no official confirmation on his stats.
But this eight-minute video here still offers us a glimpse of what may be around the corner if young Cristiano decides to become a footballer.
