Cristiano Ronaldo Jr. has been working hard since moving to Saudi Arabia with his father. According to a recent report from The Sun, the 12-year-old has already made a big impression in the country and is currently training with players who are two years older than him.
His father, Cristiano Ronaldo, signed a lucrative two-and-a-half year deal with Al-Nassr on New Year’s Eve but was unable to make his official debut in the Middle East due to a ban he received during his final months at Manchester United. After weeks of waiting, Ronaldo finally made his debut in the Saudi Pro League on Sunday, in Al-Nassr’s 1-0 win over Ettifaq.
While the elder Ronaldo took center stage on Sunday, his son has been hard at work training at the Mahd Academy, which is the national sports center in Saudi Arabia. The youngster, who could have returned to Real Madrid to join their academy, is said to be training in the age group two years above him already.
