Cristiano Ronaldo’s first son officially joins Juventus youth academy
Cristiano Ronaldo’s son has officially joined the Juventus development side just days after Ronaldo claimed Cristiano Junior will follow in his footsteps.
Ronaldo, 33, joined Juve this month in a club-record deal and relocated from Madrid along with his whole family. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner recently told DAZN that he is ‘100 percent sure’ his first-born will emulate him on the football pitch.
According to Football Italia, Giovani Bianconeri spotted Cristiano Jr in training today with the Pulcini 2010 squad reserved for Under-9s at the Vinovo ground.
He’s not the only son of a senior Juventus player, as Mattia Barzagli has been in the Juve side for a couple of years along with Davide Marchisio, the son of club legend Claudio.
