Ronaldo: I won’t push my son to be a footballer but I would like that

Cristiano Jr is a Juventus academy player but his father says he won’t put him under pressure to become a professional footballer.

Having dominated the football world alongside Lionel Messi,

Cristiano Ronaldo

has been at the peak level of the football world for more than a decade. The Portuguese superstar is now in the final years of his career at


but his influence on the game has persuaded the Globe Soccer Awards to elect him as the Player of the Century. The 35-year old was asked about his son at the ceremony who has been a promising player for Juventus academy.

“Sometimes he drinks coke, sodas and eats crisps and he knows it makes me angry,” Ronaldo said, according to A Bola.

"Sometimes I tell my son after a run on the treadmill to dive into the cold water to recover and he says: ‘Dad, it’s so cold there.’ That’s fine, it is normal, he is only 10 years old."

Despite his desire to see Cristiano Jr as a football player, Ronaldo says he will let his son decide for himself.

“We’ll see if my son will become a great footballer,” Ronaldo said. "He has potential. He is fast and dribbles well, but that is not enough. I always tell him that it takes work and dedication to have success.

“I won’t pressure him to become a footballer, but if you ask me if I want him to, yes I would like it. The most important thing is to become the best at whatever he does, whether it is as a footballer or a doctor.”
