Cristiano Ronaldo’s son has scored almost twice as many goals for Juventus as his father has since they moved to Italy

Cristiano Ronaldo’s son has scored almost twice as many goals for Juventus as he has since moving to Italy.

Ronaldo joined Juventus from Real Madrid in July 2018 for a fee of $112 million, and has since scored 34 times in all competitions for the Italian champion.

Nine-year-old Ronaldo Jr. however, who joined the club’s academy at the same time, has far eclipsed his famous father’s record in front of goal, finding the net an astonishing 58 times in just 28 games. 

Adding to that impressive total, he’s also provided 18 assists for his “Pulcini Under-9” teammates. 

Ronaldo Jr scored four goals on his debut for Juventus in September 2018, according to Tuttosport, and in April, he  scored seven in a single half against CS Maritimo, say AS.

Even his dad admits he’s been better

Cristiano Ronaldo rescued Juventus at the death as his penalty delivered a barely-deserved 2-1 win over Genoa at Allianz Stadium.

Juve needed to respond to Inter Milan’s victory at Brescia 24 hours earlier to return to top spot, and Leonardo Bonucci’s 36th-minute header sent them down the right path.

Christian Kouame’s miskick fooled Juve goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon as Genoa levelled four minutes later, yet the dismissal of Francesco Cassata after half-time gave the hosts the upper hand once more.

They could not make their personnel advantage count and lost it when substitute Adrien Rabiot saw red in the 86th minute.

Ronaldo was offside when he put the ball in the net deep into stoppage time – yet he was subsequently caught by Antonio Sanabria in the box and made no mistake with his penalty, sparing Juve blushes.
