Fans are convinced Cristiano Ronaldo is creating “another beast for the football world” after seeing his son scoring an incredible free-kick.
Ronaldo is still going strong at the ripe old age of 38, scoring 54 goals for club and country in 2023.
And while he does not appear to be approaching retirement anytime soon, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s successor might just be waiting in the wings.
Ronaldo’s son, Cristiano Jr, is making waves and recently took part in a training session with Chelsea academy prospect Yahya Idrissi.
And footage has emerged of the youngster practicing free-kicks. He lined up against a mannequin wall, with a goalkeeper also placed in between the sticks.
The 13-year-old adopted a very different technique to his dad’s knuckleball, instead opting for curl.
He produced an effort with serious whip and venom, seeing the ball sale into the top corner.
The goalkeeper didn’t even dive after being rooted to the spot but there was no way he would have got anywhere near it.
The worldie striker was shared with the caption, “Cristiano Ronaldo is literally creating another beast for the football world”.
Cristiano Jr has followed his father to both Juventus and Manchester United in recent years.
And when his dad went to Al Nassr, he joined the youth academy of the Saudi Pro League side.
Fabrizio Romano claims he too is wearing the No.7 shirt and is playing two age groups with the Under 15 team.
Ronaldo will be 39 next month but he has already spoke about his son’s desire to play with him one day.
In 2022, Ronaldo said: “My son tells me, ‘Dad hold on a few more years – I want to play with you.’
“Only time will tell. I will never pressure him [to play football]. He will do what he wants.
“Also what I want the most for Cristianito and everyone else is that they’re happy and that they choose what they want. “I will support in any way.”
