Ronaldo revels in son's hat-trick days after his own against Atletico
3 months ago 0
Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has seen his son net a hat-trick days after he achieved the same feat in a Champions League clash with Atletico.
The Portuguese superstar has actually claimed match balls in his last two outings in Europe’s premier club competition, having previously bagged a treble in a quarter-final tie with Bayern Munich.
Santos baffled by Ronaldo criticism
He has become the first man to pass the 100-goal mark on the grandest of continental stages, while also matching Lionel Messi’s haul of hat-tricks for Barcelona.
It appears that those heroics run in the family, with Cristiano Jr showing at youth level that he is ready to follow in his father’s illustrious footsteps.
So proud of my boy hat trick
While Ronaldo has shrugged off criticism to return to his talismanic best over recent weeks, he will not be given the opportunity to add to his goal tally this weekend.
Ronaldo left out of Madrid squad
Zinedine Zidane has taken the opportunity to hand the 32-year-old a well-earned rest in Madrid’s latest outing against Granada.
Ronaldo does, however, have 35 efforts to his name in his 41 appearances this season and is one short of officially reaching 400 for the Blancos.
