Cristiano Ronaldo hopes his son follows in his footsteps

Cristiano Ronaldo wants his son to follow in his footsteps.

The 30-year-old soccer star - who has a five-year-old boy, also named Cristiano, with an unnamed woman - has revealed he would love to see his son emulate his success on the sports field.

Speaking at the world premiere of his eponymous documentary film in London's Leicester Square, Ronaldo was asked about his son's career plans, and he replied: "My son, he is a young boy he changes his mind every second.

"For me, he can be whatever he wants but of course, I want him to be like his dad and score goals, and make goals. I'd like him to be a striker."

The Portuguese forward - who dated model-turned-actress Irina Shayk until earlier this year - also claimed he had no issues having cameras follow him around for the making of the documentary.

He said: "It's easy! For me, it's not a problem, I'm used to it. I've been in this business for 15 years, it's a different thing. It's a special moment for me.

"I just feel proud and happy to have made the film."

Meanwhile, the three-time World Player of the Year revealed hark work and dedication have been the keys to his career success.

Ronaldo - who currently plays for Spanish giants Real Madrid - said: "I never thought I'd become the best player in the world, I never thought about that.

"But I had the motivation to work hard all the time and do my best. It's great what has happened in my career."

Other guests in attendance at the premiere included soccer luminaries Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho.
