Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. joins Manchester United

Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. is a brave boy for attempting to follow his famous father’s footsteps. The eldest son of five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo has officially signed with the Manchester United academy, and will forge his career path in the very club where his famous father is currently still playing.

The Portuguese star re-joined the Red Devils this season after leaving the club in 2009. Since then, he cemented his reputation as one of the best players in history by collecting trophies and accolades during his legendary stints with Spanish giants Real Madrid and Italian side Juventus FC.

Now that he’s back with United, his 11-year-old son is carving out his own path as a footballer. It will be quite a challenge to try to even come close to replicate his father’s achievements, but the whole family is behind him.

Ronaldo’s partner Georgina Rodriguez was there to support the youngster as he officially joined the club earlier this week. She shared a photo from his presentation, which shows Cristiano Jr. holding up the iconic red Manchester United jersey with his father’s famous name and number 7 combination. He was presented to the club alongside Gabriel, another talented youngster.
