Cristiano Ronaldo won the best player of the century award and in that ceremony, with an interview he showcased exactly why he is who he is.
The player was asked about his son’s potential and his response was as motivating and as truthful as you can expect him to be.
In a tweet he posted after winning the ‘Player of the Century’, he wrote: “My son has potential, We’ll see if he will become a great footballer. Sometimes he drinks coke and eats crisps and it irritates me. I just want him to be the best in whatever he chooses to do. I always tell him, hard work is the most important.”
While collecting the ‘Player of the Century’ award at the Global Soccer Awards in Dubai, Ronaldo was asked about the future of football, to which he said: “The future is the kids. I see my son (Cristiano Jr) and he wants to look like me. But there is a long way to go for him.”
Ronaldo then added, “I’m hard with him sometimes because he drinks Coca-Cola and Fanta, which is not good for the body. I fight with him when he eats chips and fries and everything – I don’t like it. Even my younger kids, I have four and want what is best for them but when they eat chocolate they always look at me and as a parent and I have to be strong.”
