Cristiano Ronaldo says he doesn’t like his son to drink coke and eat crisps: ‘But I won’t pressure him to become a footballer.’
The Juventus striker has won the Globe Soccer Awards’ Player of the Century on Sunday and spoke to reporters after the award ceremony.
“We’ll see if my son will become a great footballer,” he said, according to A Bola.
“Sometimes he drinks coke and eats crisps and it irritates me, he knows that,” the Portuguese star added.
“Sometimes I tell my son to take a dip in cold water to recover after a run on the treadmill and he says: ‘Dad, it’s so cold there.’ That’s fine, he is only 10-year-old.”
Cristiano Junior, 10, is playing in the Juventus academy.
“I always tell him that it takes work and dedication to have success,” Ronaldo continued.
“I won’t pressure him to become a footballer, but I would like it. The most important thing is to become the best in his field, whether it is football or medicine.”
