Cristiano Ronaldo gets ‘irritated’ when Cristiano Jr has coke and crisps – but won’t pressure him to become footballer

CRISTIANO RONALDO has insisted he will not 'pressure' eldest son Cristiano Jr into a footballing career.

The youngster is part of Juventus' academy and has impressed in a number of youth tournaments.

But, according to his dad, the 10-year-old is partial to a bottle of coke and packet of crisps.

Speaking after being named Player of the Century at Dubai's Globe Soccer Awards, he confessed his 'irritation' at some of his son's habits.

A Bola, via Football Italia, quote Ronaldo as saying: "We’ll see if my son will become a great footballer.

"Sometimes he drinks coke and eats crisps and it irritates me, he knows that.

"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 years old."

Cristiano Jr is the eldest of Ronaldo's four kids, along with twins Eva and Mateo and daughter Alana Martina, who the Juve winger had with partner Georgina Rodriguez.

Although the young lad is naturally a talented player, as seen in backyard training clips posted by the legendary forward, a career in the game is not guaranteed.

And Ronaldo, 35, admitted he would 'like' to see Junior follow in his footsteps.

I won’t pressure him into becoming a footballer, but I would like it.

He added: "I always tell him that it takes work and dedication to have success.

"I won’t pressure him into becoming 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."
