Cristiano Ronaldo has made himself synonymous with La Liga giants Real Madrid, after making his name with the club following several title wins and Champions League successes, becoming one of the best players in the world.
However, it appears that this trend may not run in the family after his son – Cristianinho – made his debut aged just six with a club who are not Los Blancos, and Ronaldo himself has explained why.
The son to the former Manchester United winger has begun his footballing career with the lesser known side Pozuelo CF, and scored in a 4-3 victory against El Carrascal, wearing the number seven shirt – of course – with dad watching up in the stands and probably applauding the perfect start for mini-Ronaldo.
According to Spanish news outlet El Mundo, the youngster has not been enrolled into the academy at Real Madrid because Ronaldo doesn’t want his son smothered with media exposure and wants him to have some privacy when starting out his career.
However, some have brought up some conspiracy stories as to why this is, with some suggesting that the 31-year-old has fallen out with club president Florentino Perez, while others have commented that he simply isn’t ‘in love’ with the club and would rather see his child play for a different team. Awks.
