Cristiano Ronaldo has had a tough time in front of goal since making his €100 million transfer from Real Madrid to Juventus. The Portuguese superstar hasn't found the back of the net yet in the three games that he has played for the Serie A champions, which is a surprise considering his incredible goal-scoring rate.
However, the former Manchester United player could take a few tips from his son, Cristiano Ronaldo Jr., in getting back to scoring for his new club. Ronaldo's son scored four times in his debut game for Juventus' Under-9 side, wearing the same number as his father, Number 7.
Ronaldo Jr.'s four goals came against Lucento, where he scored two goals in either half, helping his side to a 5-1 victory.
In one of the goals, the 8-year-old picked up the ball in midfield, got passed a few players, played a one-two and expertly put the ball in the back of the net, much like his father.
Ronaldo Jr. has shown that he's a chip off the old block and possesses an eerily similar free-kick posture and style as his father. He also has a similar running and dribbling style.
Meanwhile, his father has gone goal-less in his first three games for Juventus but has contributed one assist in Juventus's three wins from their first three matches in the new Serie A season.
Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is not sweating over his star attacker's lack of goals and told reporters following his side's win 2-1 win over Parma that Italian football is different from other leagues and that Ronaldo will be back in the goals soon. "Cristiano Ronaldo? He is the best in the world so it's normal he wants to score and show some anxiety. In Italian football the difficulties are different from what he was used to in Spain," said Allegri.
