Cristiano Ronaldo Jnr has followed in his father's footsteps by joining Juventus, enrolling to be trained at the Juventus Academy.

All eyes were on Ronaldo Jnr, 8, as he took part in his first session this week since joining the Bianconeri academy's under-9 training camp.

According to Calciomercato, Ronaldo's partner Georgina Rodriguez was present to watch him as he played with the team alongside Andrea Barzagli's son Mattia, who has been in the Juve set-up for a few years now.

Ronaldo's son has developed his skills over the past few years and the proud dad has posted several videos on social media of Jnr scoring screamers and displaying his ability.

Ronaldo will surely be delighted Jnr now has the opportunity to hone his skills at one of the best academies in the world.

The Juventus forward, who moved to Italy from Real Madrid in a £100million move this summer, admitted recently his dream would be to see his son emulate him by making it as a professional.

Junior is very competitive, he's like me when I was young,' the Juventus star said in an interview with DAZN via SportingNews.

'He doesn't like to lose and he will be like me, I'm sure, 100 per cent.

'I like to teach him some stuff, but he's going to be whatever he wants and I'm always going to support him.

'But of course I want Cristiano to be a football player, because I think he has that drive. He has a good body, he's fast, he has skills, he shoots good.

'But, as you know, he's going to take his decision and he's so young. I'm not going to put pressure on him, but of course I dream to see my boy a football player.'
