Cristiano Ronaldo never hides his intention that what he wanted his son Ronaldo Jr. to be. He always revealed through his interviews, social posts and tweets that he wants Ronaldo Jr. to follow in his footsteps and became a Socer Champion like him.
Despite that Ronaldo Jr. is now only 10 years old but we can see that he already has that spark and he enjoys playing football. The youngster is part of Juventus’ academy. From the little footage that’s emerged so far, he looks like a proper talent. Business Insider reported in 2019 that Cristiano Jr had scored 58 goals in just 28 games at the time of writing.
However, according to Khabib Nurmagomedov, Ronaldo7 has one worry about his son Ronaldo Jr. regarding his career of football.
“We chat all the time, texting lots daily, but when we meet in person, we’ve had a discussion on motivation sources recently,” Khabib revealed in an interview with YouTube channel Krasava.
“He told me he wanted his son to succeed him but he was worried his son won’t be able to do it since when Cristiano himself was his age, he could only dream about a pair of simple cleats [boots].
“Ronaldo Jr. has everything. So he’s worried that he will never feel that hunger.
“In fact, people are driven by hunger. One needs motivation, one needs to have a desire to achieve things.
“When you have everything, it’s hard to find a proper source of motivation.
“When he told me that, I can’t say I was surprised, as things are simple things. But I liked it. I understood that he was such a person who would never be satisfied with one, two, or three titles.”
It seems that it is absolutely a fair concern. Ronaldo7 had that passion to change his life and to live that dream. For this, he struggles from a very young age and covers all the hurdles of his life.
On the contrary, Ronaldo Jr. is living a full luxurious life and we assume that he could have some lack of passion and motivation. That’s not his fault, of course. It’s just the way it is.
