Cristiano Ronaldo Jr's performances for Juventus U9 before trophy picture on Instagram


Cristiano Ronaldo has been keeping fans posted with his son's performances in the Juventus youth teams.

Both father and son are representing the Italian champions after moving from Real Madrid this summer and Ronaldo Jr currently plays with the under-9 team.

Given the incredible legacy of his father, there are high expectations that Ronaldo Jr will go onto become a professional footballer himself and look to reach the top level.

Ronaldo Sr doesn't think it will be easy to match his very own achievements, though, and remarked in an interview with BeIN Sports: "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.

Updates on Ronaldo Jr

"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."

Only the occasional detail has emerged about his performances with Juventus, from him scoring four goals on his debut to his father uploading a clip of him scoring a fantastic individual goal.

Nevertheless, a piece of insight has been provided this week with Ronaldo Jr appearing on his father's Instagram, sat next to a trophy with the simple caption: 'Congratulations.'

His trophy-winning performances

The post begs plenty of questions, though: what is the trophy for? Is it an individual award for Ronaldo Jr? What does it mean for his future at the club?

Well, information has started to emerge from Italy and predominantly from Giovani Bianconeri who provides regular updates on the performances of Juventus youth teams.

According to him, the trophy was awarded for winning the 'Torneo Galup' with Juventus U9 winning both their group games 10-0 and then defeating Torino 5-4 in the final.

Ronaldo Jr reportedly scored three goals in the tournament, including one goal in the final.

Check out the update, photos and even a video of him attempting a scorpion kick below:

Very impressive stuff, to say the least.

It's fair to say the scorpion kick video would have been on Ronaldo Sr's Instagram if it found the net, but three goals remains an impressive return nonetheless.

What's becoming very apparent from his performances in youth teams is his ability to score goals, something his father will be very pleased with.

Earlier this month, it emerged that Ronaldo Jr scored four goals in one game, exactly as he had done on his very first Juventus appearance.

Of course, it's still incredibly early days for Ronaldo Jr and there should be no pressure on him to reach his father's dizzying heights.

As long as positive updates keep emerging from Juventus, though, there is plenty to celebrate and hopefully he'll continue to impress in Turin.

At this stage, it's all about enjoyment and Ronaldo Jr has plenty of goals to celebrate.
