Speaking about his son who is now 10-years-old and plays with in the Juventus under-age system, the Madeira born forward stated: "We'll have to wait and see if my son becomes a great player. At times he eats crisps and drinks fizzy drinks and he knows that makes me angry, but I guess that's normal behavior for a ten-year-old boy. He has the potential to be good as he is fast and can beat players. That said, he needs to work hard and show dedication. I won't apply any pressure on him but if you ask me if I'd like to see him succeed in football, then I'd say 'yes'. However, I want the best for him always and that's irrespective if he becomes a footballer or a doctor", he added.
Chocolate at the CR7 household
Fizzy drinks and crisps are not the only taboo snack foods in the Ronaldo household with Cristiano adding that the smaller children are fond of chocolate. "My younger kids eat chocolate and then look at me to see my reaction as they know I frown upon it" added the Portuguese forward.
A video shared recently by Georgina Rodríguez showed the reaction by the three-year-old Alana Martina when she was offered some chocolate..."no, chocolate no, dad will get cross".
