Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the world’s greatest ever soccer players, and the greatest ever in the eyes of many. The 38-year-old has long dominated the sport alongside rival Lionel Messi winning every trophy and individual award and topping every stat he could.

With such an impact on the pitch, the Portuguese forward is one of the most followed men on the world. He has provided inspiration to many fans around the world, with many young soccer players growing up admiring him.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s social media was buzzing with a heartwarming video on Saturday, showcasing the superstar footballer having a great time playing indoor soccer with his sons Cristiano Jr. and Mateo. The clip, shared by his partner Georgina Rodriguez, quickly went viral, highlighting the family’s passion for the beautiful game.

Ronaldo Jr. wore his usual outfits, but Mateo added a playful twist by wearing a Paris Saint-Germain jersey with Kylian Mbappé’s name on it, possibly suggesting some friendly competition among the family members. Even their youngest, Bella, joined in the fun, wearing a Minnie Mouse hairband that added an adorable touch to the wholesome scene.

It is unclear whether he is a fan of Kylian Mbappe or not, but it is well known that Ronaldo allows his children to form their own opinions. He mentioned that he permits his son to watch highlights of Messi and is generally supportive of his children making their own choices.

Ronaldo’s sons have worn jerseys from different teams before, and this is not the first time. Mateo was even spotted wearing a Barcelona jersey, a club that was Ronaldo’s rival during his tenure at Real Madrid. His oldest son, Cristiano Jr., frequently dons jerseys from various clubs and national teams.

Mbappe chose Ronaldo as his idol

It is also important to note that Kylian Mbappe himself is a lifelong fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and considers him an idol. It is a known fact that he has long idolized both the player and his club, Real Madrid, where he has constantly been linked with.

This was confirmed by Mbappe’s father in 2016: “He is a Real Madrid fan and his idol is Cristiano Ronaldo. He used to spend hours watching videos [of Ronaldo] on the internet.”

Despite playing with Lionel Messi at club level, it seems he holds the same opinions. He once posted an image with Ronaldo, having exchanged shirts after an international game. He wrote the caption ‘Idol’ and made sure everyone knew who his GOAT was.
