Khabib Nurmagomedov has disclosed that Cristiano Ronaldo's greatest fear is on whether his first son would be able to succeed him in football when he grows up.
Cristiano Ronaldo is no doubt one of the best footballers on earth considering his achievements in the round leather game ever since he started his football career in Portugal.
Every professional who has a son would love to see his own flesh take over from him when he quit the game of soccer and Ronaldo is also in the same position.
But according to the Russian UFC star, he explained that Cristiano Ronaldo is having the feelings that his son may not have the same hunger he had when he was young.
According to the report on Daily Mail, Khabib Nurmagomedov stated clearly that he talks with Cristiano Ronaldo almost everyday.
''We talk many times, almost every day, but when we met we had a conversation about where we got our motivation from.
''He told me that he wants his son to be his successor. When Cristiano was a kid, he could only dream of having a simple pair of boots.
''But his son has everything. He fears that his son will not feel the same hunger, the same will.''
