The moment Cristiano Ronaldo proved he was the ultimate soccer dad

Ethan Tait

When you think of Cristiano Ronaldo, you don’t picture that great of a father. He’s narcissistic, prissy, and as metrosexual as they come, but his close relationship with his father has inspired him to become a great father. 

Cristiano Ronaldo Jr has taken up his father’s trade (as if he had another option) and was spotted with his dad on the field with his team.

No word on whether Cristiano the younger is as pouty as his father on the pitch, but you can assume anything made in the likeness of Ronaldo has to prone to throwing tantrums when the ball isn’t passed his way.

Surprisingly, Ronaldo was on hand, not to interrupt in the footballing education of his by advertising the number of Ballon d’Ors he’s won in order to compensate for something, but was merely a dad taking his son to his soccer game.

A video caught the Portuguese international retrieving balls at his son’s game after an attempt on net was off the frame. Ronaldo simply retrieved the ball and was not looking for any foul on the play or applause from the other parents.

At times, you can forget that players and celebrities are people too, especially when those people are like Ronaldo.

Evidently, talks are going on with Arsene Wenger as he attempts something new in trying to sign the son of a superstar.

As much shit Ronaldo receives for being a playboy in the world of football, he’s doing a hell of a job being a father and family man. He could’ve refused to take responsibility for his son and put it on the mother of the baby, but he didn’t.

My father was always in good spirits, he loved football. It makes me a bit sad because if he could enjoy seeing me now, what I have achieved, that would be a highlight in his life. But I’m sure that he watches over me from above.

CR7 took full responsibly for his lack of protection and took on the task of being a father head on – pun intended.

Let’s see what happens, little Ronaldo is still young and has a lot of learning to do.
