Cristiano Ronaldo Jr was filmed playing for Manchester United’s youth academy by mother Georgina Rodriguez on Saturday.
The 11-year-old represented the Red Devils while his dad suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat by Watford with the senior team at Vicarage Road.
Georgina, 27, opted to avoid the trip down to Watford to instead watch Ronaldo’s eldest son in action along with the couple’s three other children.
And she was beaming with pride as she watched the highly-rated youngster in action, posting a short video clip of him in the famous red jersey playing up-front like his father, who will go down as one of the greatest forwards to ever play the game.
She wrote: “plan de sabado,” meaning ‘Saturday plan’ in English.
Rodriguez regularly follows her son’s football matches, having posted a picture of her, Ronaldo Jr and her other children earlier this month.
She captioned the post on Instagram: “Supporting my big boy,” followed by a football and love heart emoji.
Ronaldo Jr, who is eager to follow in his dad’s footsteps, also played for Juventus prior to the 36-year-old’s move to Old Trafford.
He was even said by his grandmother Dolores Aveiro to be a better player at this stage than his father was.

Speaking to the AND de Leao podcast in September, she said: “At his age, he plays better than Ronaldo.
“At that age Ronaldo didn’t have a coach but today Ronaldo is his son’s teacher.”
She went on to add that her dream is for both Ronaldos to one day return to Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon, where the Man United star first made his name as a professional.
She added: “I’ve already told him: ‘Son before I die, I want to see you return to Sporting’. He says: ‘Let’s see’: But if it can’t be him then Christianinho!
“He’s already saying ‘Dad, when we move to Lisbon I want to play for Sporting.”
