Cristiano Ronaldo has not scored a single goal since his much-talked about move to Juventus from Real Madrid. Ronaldo has played three games in the season so far and has not been able to find the back of the net despite several attempts. On the contrary, his son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. is making headlines with four goals on his Juventus Pulcini (Under-9s team) debut against Lucento.
The 33-year-old has been supportive of his son trying to make a career in football. Recently, at an event for DAZN, he said,
“He’s very competitive, like me when I was young, and he doesn’t like to lose. He will be like me I am sure, 100 per cent. I hope that with my experience with my motivation, my goals, I can teach him some stuff, but you know he is going to be whatever he wants. I’m always going to support him, but of course I want Cristiano to be a football player because I think he has that drive. He has a good body, he’s fast, he has skills, he can shoot, but as you know he’s going to make his decision and he’s so young, I’m not going to pressure him. But that is, of course, a dream, to see my boy a football player,”.
Twitterati did not hold back from comparing the father-son duo and trolling Cristiano Ronaldo:
Ronaldo’s son scored four goals on his debut for the Juventus academy…boy has some serious talent

You don’t make this up

Ronaldo left Madrid to Juve to get out of Messi’s shadow, unfortunately for him, he is now in his own son’s shadow as his son has 4 goals in 1 game in a Juve shirt when his dad has 0 from 23+ shots in 3 games

Ronaldo is the type of guy to turn off the TV when his son scores a goal.

Apparently, Ronaldo son has scored 4 goals in his debut game for Juve Under 9 team.
His dad needs scoring classes from him.

The goal machine has misfired in the tournament so far against Chievo, Lazio and Parma. The Portuguese will have another chance to open his account against Sassuolo on September 16.
