Real Madrid star footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has said that he wishes his son becomes a professional top footballer just like himself, but said he wouldnâ€™t force his son to take up football as a career.
Ronaldo frequently uploads pictures of himself and his son in the gym or playing football and says his sonâ€™s athletic characteristics and love for football at 5 years of age is a sign his son might go into the football world.
â€œI want my son to be a player. I am a footballer and I want him to be one too,â€ the Real Madrid star told the Chinese channel Zhejiang Satellite TV, which has been filming Ronaldo as part of a reality show based around the player.
I think he has something of an athlete about him, he has athletic characteristics. Obviously he is very young, a baby, heâ€™s only five but he loves football, that is a big plus.
I have 30 balls at home, he is always with the ball and he loves it. But I will not force him to be a player because it comes naturally, it has to be his choice,
He will be whatever he wants to be, I am not going to push him at all. But obviously I want Cristiano to be a player. A top one, like his dad.â€ He said
