Cristiano Ronaldo Jnr has followed in his father's footsteps by joining Italian giants Juventus.

All eyes were on the eight-year-old as he took part in his first session since joining the Bianconeri academy's under-9 training camp.

According to Italian media outfit Calciomercato, Ronaldo's partner Georgina Rodriguez was present to watch her son play with the team alongside Andrea Barzagli's son Mattia, who has been in the Juve set-up for a few years now.

CR7 has posted several videos on social media of Jnr scoring screamers and displaying his ability.

The 33-year-old Portuguese ace will understandably be delighted Jnr now has the opportunity to hone his skills under the tutelage of one of the best football academies in the world.

Ronaldo, who moved to Italy from Real Madrid in a £100million move, admitted recently his dream would be to see his son emulate him by making it as a professional.

"[Cristiano Jr] is very competitive, he's like me when I was young," the Juventus star said in an interview with DAZN via SportingNews.

"He doesn't like to lose and he will be like me, I'm sure, 100 per cent.

"I like to teach him some stuff, but he's going to be whatever he wants and I'm always going to support him.

"But of course I want Cristiano to be a football player, because I think he has that drive. He has a good body, he's fast, he has skills, he shoots good.

"But, as you know, he's going to take his decision and he's so young. I'm not going to put pressure on him, but of course I dream to see my boy a football player."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Cristiano Ronaldo's over-head kick in Real Madrid's 3-0 win against Juventus in the Champions League has won the best goal last season.

The newly-signed Juventus striker produced an acrobatic effort that left his present Turin fans on their feet applauding the technique.
