Question: “Would you want your son to become a footballer?”
Cristiano: “I would love it. Really! Like I’ve said a few times, back when he was one year, two years old, he used to really love cars. Cars, cars, cars! But lately, he’s been obsessed with the ball!
“He’s obsessed with the ball! Sometimes when I come home tired after a match, my legs ache, my feet hurt… “Daddy! Daddy! Let’s play!” And of course I can’t say no, because that’s my dream: to see him playing. But the truth is he’s surprised me, because of the way he is about it. He’s already asked me for boots with studs and everything! I don’t know where it comes from. He’s kicking the ball well, too. “
Host: “Same as his father! A footballer!”
Cristiano: “Really, he’s surprising me! I’m very excited, and I would love it. But he’s still little and has a whole future ahead of him.”
Host: “Has he already signed for Mendes or am I allowed to talk to your son?”
Cristiano: “Oh, he’ll sign. If it’s up to me, he’ll sign!”—
Ugh, how adorable!!
