“He says he will be better than I, but I think it will be difficult.”

Ronaldo Sr fathered his son with an unknown surrogate.

The eight-year was in the stands alongside his dad’s stunning girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez on Sunday as Ronaldo Sr finally announced himself in the Serie A this season.

He bagged a tap-in before drilling home a counter-attack strike from Emre Can’s through ball to put the Serie A winners 2-0 up against Sassuolo.

Georgina and Ron Jr shared a grin after watching Daddy do what he does best and put the ball in the back of the net.

The away side did bag a last-minute consolation, but it was too little too late — despite Douglas Costa’s late red card for spitting.

Ronaldo had struggled to find the net after over 300 minutes of football for Juventus.
