Cristiano Jnr has been adjudged the best striker in the Juventus under-9 tournament.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s son wins best striker award
As the saying goes like father like son and Cristiano Ronaldo’s son is following the footstep of his father.
Great footballers necessary don’t give birth to iconic footballers. It is very rare. The two greatest footballers of the 20th century Maradona and Pele didn't see their children take after their football prowess. You can say the same about Johann Cruyff, Michel Platini, Franz Beckenbauer and the list goes on.

However, Ronaldo’s son seems to have taken inspiration from the few footballers who followed the steps of their fathers like Paolo Maldini, Pepe Reina, Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew etc.
According to Give Me Sport, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. is also crunching numbers for his Juventus youth team. In just 28 games, the superstar’s son has scored a staggering 58 goals. He has also registered 18 assists in the campaign.
Last year, Cristiano Ronaldo said although he wants his son to be like him, it was going to be difficult.
“I hope that Cris, my son, can be like his dad. He says he is going to be better [than me], but I think it’s difficult.``
“I am very happy to have scored, for him too. He is playing for Juventus and adapting really well, it has been easier for him than for me.”
