Cristiano Ronaldo’s son shows he’s learning free-kicks fast as Real Madrid star reveals incredible boot collection in interview with former Manchester United-team-mate Rio Ferdinand
During an interview between Ronaldo and Ferdinand, Cristiano Jnr shows off his shooting skills and even beats the ex-West Ham centre back with a powerful effort.
He also cracks the bar of the mini goal in Ronaldo’s back garden before showing off some tricks and flicks and doing press-ups alongside former England stopper Ferdinand.
Speaking to Ferdinand, the man he played alongside for six years at Old Trafford, Ronaldo admitted he’ll never forget his time at United after showing off the footwear which helped make him a world superstar at Real.
‘All these people are coming here just to see me. It was a great surprise for me. It was an unbelievable day.
‘I was so proud and you know I feel inside that the people here in Spain live for football. They love it. It was a great day for me.
‘I just thought in my mind “I want to go there to show my level, to show that I’m a different player” and this is what I did.
‘I arrive, I did a fantastic season. I improve every season. It was a great experience but I never forget the Red Devils.’
Ronaldo had already won one Ballon d’Or by the time he departed for Spain, but it was his incredible transformation from scrawny teenager to world-beater which really caught the eye in Manchester.
It’s to have the family that I have, the friends that I have and to try to be the most happy person in the world,’ Ronaldo admits.
Ferdinand hung up his boots in 2015 after almost 20 years playing for West Ham, Leeds, United and QPR, but will be returning to professional sport when he takes on Betfair’s ‘Defender to Contender’ boxing challenge over the coming year.
Asked where he’d like to be in 10 years, Ronaldo joked: ‘In 10 years it will be tough (to win the Ballon d’Or). Maybe to do boxing like you?’
