Like father like son – Ronaldo Jr. wins best striker award
Cristiano Ronaldo’s son has won the best striker award for a Juventus under-9 tournament.
Usually, superstar footballer’s children have a huge pressure mounting on them. More often than not, these youngsters have the burden to reach the same heights as their fathers.
But Cristiano Ronaldo’s son seems to have no difficulty in following his father’s footsteps. Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. has recently scooped up the award for the best striker at the Under-9 tournament. The 9-year old also helped his team lift the Cavour Trophy while scoring three goals in the process.

According to Give Me Sport, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. is also crunching numbers for his Juventus youth team. In just 28 games, the superstar’s son has scored a staggering 58 goals. He has also registered 18 assists in the campaign.
Last year, Cristiano Ronaldo said although he wants his son to be like him, it was going to be difficult.
“I hope that Cris, my son, can be like his dad. He says he is going to be better [than me], but I think it’s difficult.
“I am very happy to have scored, for him too. He is playing for Juventus and adapting really well, it has been easier for him than for me.”
