Now, the 31-year-old footballer has divulged that his son, Cristiano Jnr is being taunted about his father being the best footballer.

The four-time Ballon d’Or winner wailed that people are mocking and directing sarcastic remarks at his son over the debate on who is the better player between himself and rival Lionel Messi.

Nonetheless, the Real Madrid star related that his son is handling the scoffing words about his father’s career in a smart manner because he advised him to remain polite.

Ronaldo reportedly said: “there are people who sometimes say to him that ‘there is another player who is better than your father’, but he knows how to deal with that.

“He is a smart boy like me. I often tell him ‘be yourself and be polite.”

The Portuguese player further talked about his son saying: “I know that he will go through periods of adversity as there are jealous people out there, but I see him as a happy child.”

When he was asked if he’d like his son to follow his footsteps, he said: “of course I would like it if he became a footballer.

“I know that it is a challenge and that it isn’t easy, but he can be whatever he wants to be as I won’t pressure him.

I might be pushing him a little in the direction of becoming a footballer, but not to be a goalkeeper as I want him to be a forward,” added the Portuguese star.
