Real Madrid’s iconic superstar Cristiano Ronaldo wants his son, Cristiano Jnr, to become a top footballer like him as he feels that the five year old boy has the ability to become a good player.
“I want my son to be a player. I am a footballer and I want him to be one too,” the Real Madrid star told the Chinese channel Zhejiang Satellite TV.
“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.
He added that it is his son’s choice to become a footballer or not and will try not to impose his will on him because this game comes naturally and someone can not be forced to play and step onto the field.
“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.”
Ronaldo is currently going through a rigorous routine in order to prepare for Saturday’s El Clasico against arch rivals FC Barcelona.
