The Instagram post came shortly after Cristiano Ronaldo’s mother Dolores Aveiro claimed that her grandson was ‘better than his father was at his age’.

Aveiro said that Ronaldo Jr will reach the same heights his father has. She also expressed her desire for the 11-year-old to play for Sporting Lisbon in the future. 

Aveiro said she hopes Ronaldo will return to Sporting once last time before he hangs up his boots.  

”Let’s see…’, he [Ronaldo] said, but if it isn’t [him], it’s Cristianinho! At his age, he plays better than Ronaldo. At the time, Ronaldo didn’t have a coach, but today Ronaldo is his son’s teacher.’ 

Ronaldo Jr has been training with his father at Manchester United after spending two years at Juventus’ academy.

While at the Turin club, Ronaldo Jr put up some impressive numbers for the Under 9s team, scoring 56 goals in 35 games, while providing 26 assists last year.

Ronaldo has been impressed with his son’s performances and said he would like for him to pursue a career in football. However, he did admit that he would support Ronaldo Jr is he chose a different path.   

‘I would love for him to be a footballer, because he feels passion for this sport,’ Ronaldo told DAZN. ‘He is a competitor and he hates losing.’
