If anything could be said of Ronaldo’s legacy in football, apart from his enviable goal-scoring prowess which has seen him hit a record-breaking 700 career goals in a spree of 973 matches, his son Cristiano Jr would also be at centre of discussion.
The Portuguese star came to Juventus after disagreeing with Real Madrid hierarchy in 2018 with his 9-year-old son also joining the Turin youth academy.
And like father like son, Cristiano Jr also boasts of an impressing goal-scoring run in what has been likened to Ronaldo’s brilliance in his heydays.
