Could this be the first we see of Cristiano Jr.’s path to emulating his father?

It would surely be a dream for Cristiano Sr. to see his son follow in his footsteps and become a football legend.

Check out Ronaldo and his son in action

The last thing Ronaldo needs to work on is his accuracy. The 31-year-old has scored 40 goals this season and 15 in his past 11 games.

Ronaldo followed up his four-goal display against Celta Vigo with the opening strike in Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Roma.

Is there anything he can learn by kicking a ball at a toy pig and a statue of an owl? Perhaps not.

Public attack on teammates

However, he could learn the art of teamwork. Ronaldo has been booed by his own fans in the Santiago Bernabeu following his public attack on his teammates.

Ronaldo questioned the level of his teammates after the 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid, saying: “If they were all as good as me, we’d be top,” per Marca.

Fortunately, his comments haven’t created a rift in the locker room. Real Madrid have won their three games since to Madrid derby defeat, scoring 13 goals in the process, and are through to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Ronaldo’s sister, Katia Aveiro was forced to hit out at Spanish newspaper Sport after they reported that the Madrid star’s son looked uninterested during his father’s stunning performance against Celta Vigo.

She said, per Sport English: “At least he's accompanying his dad, no? Others prefer to stay at home watching Peppa Pig. It's normal, he's seen his father score goals that leave you without words, let him breathe, he's a kid."

Ronaldo scores for fun

Cristiano Jr. can be forgiven for not watching his father’s every move - he’s seen him score hundreds of times in the past.

Zinedine Zidane will hope the Portugal international can score plenty more for him as he looks to go head-to-head with Barcelona in future seasons.

The Frenchman’s first season in charge of Los Blancos will be regarded a disappointment if the club fail to win the Champions League, but given that he replaced Rafa Benitez in January, Madrid’s hierarchy shouldn’t have expected immediate glory.

The Champions League should simply be seen as a bonus. Barcelona and Bayern Munich are clearly superior to Madrid but, with Gareth Bale back in action following his calf injury, Los Blancos have every chance of reaching the final.
