Having previously experienced youth development at Real Madrid, Juventus, and Manchester United's academies, Junior made the transition to Al-Nassr's academy following his father's unexpected yet lucrative move to the Saudi Pro League club.

Since then, he has swiftly adapted to life in the Middle East, mirroring his father's seamless adjustment, and showcased maturity beyond his years when discussing his experiences in Saudi Arabia, reflecting his elite mindset despite his young age.

"I am very happy that I came here. I feel very comfortable, I adapt very quickly, and I enjoy this season a lot alhamdulillah [Praise be to God]," he said as quoted by The Nassr Zone.

The curious moment between Ronaldo and son

While Cristiano Jr. showcased the same winning mentality that has defined his father's illustrious career, the teenager found himself in an awkward moment when he encountered his superstar dad.

Prior to the Saudi Pro League match between Al-Nassr, captained by the five-time Ballon d'Or winner, and Al Fateh on Saturday, February 17, there was a notable interaction involving father and son.

The budding talents, led by Ronaldo's eldest son, were invited to join the senior players in celebrating their latest accolade before the match against Al-Fateh.

As the young players stepped onto the field, they received applause from the players.

However, Cristiano Jr. appeared slightly hesitant to greet his father, prompting Ronaldo to playfully admonish him for his hesitation, as cited by GOAL.

Cristiano Jr scores a sublime free kick

Much like his father, who possesses a knack for spectacular goals, Cristiano Jr. displayed similar prowess during a recent training session, Sports Brief reported.

In a video clip, the young player showcased his talent by elegantly curling a free kick into the top corner from a considerable distance, to his own astonishment.

At just 13 years old, Cristiano Jr. plays for the same club as his father, Al-Nassr, and is already exhibiting a level of skill reminiscent of his father's while at the Saudi club.
