Real Madrid star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has said that
he wishes his son becomes a professional top footballer
just like himself, but said he wouldn’t force his son to take
up football as a career.
Ronaldo frequently uploads pictures of himself and his son
in the gym or playing football and says his son’s athletic
characteristics and love for football at 5 years of age is a
sign his son might go into the football world.
“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, which
has been filming Ronaldo as part of a reality show
based around the player.
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
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.” He said
