GEORGINA RODRIGUEZ proudly watched on as Cristiano Ronaldo Jr played for Manchester United’s youth team yesterday.
While his dad was getting thrashed 4-1 by Watford at Vicarage Road, 11-year-old Cristiano Jr was in action for the academy.
Georgina, 27, gave the trip south a miss in order to watch CR7’s eldest son in action.
Bursting with pride, the model posted a short video clip of the youngster in action.
She wrote ‘plan de sabado’, meaning ‘Saturday plan’ in English.
It’s not clear whether Cristiano Jr was on the winning team or not.
But he is a highly-rated young player.
Until his dad’s summer transfer, he had been playing for Juventus since 2018.
And when discussing her son potentially moving back to Sporting Lisbon earlier this year, Ronaldo‘s mother Dolores Aveiro claimed that her grandson ‘Cristianinho’ could follow in the five-time Ballon d’or winner’s footsteps.
She told the ADN de Leao podcast back in September: “Ronaldo has to come back (to Sporting), for me he’d be here.
“He likes to watch Sporting’s games. I’ve already told him: ‘Son, before I die I want to see you return to Sporting.’
“Let’s see…”, he said, but if it isn’t [him], it’s Cristianinho!
“At his age, he plays better than Ronaldo. At the time, Ronaldo didn’t have a coach, but today Ronaldo is his son’s teacher.”
Yesterday wasn’t the first time that Georgina has been a cheerleader on the sidelines for Cristiano Jr.
Earlier this month, the pregnant beauty took Cristiano Jr’s three siblings along to catch one of his games.
He is a competitor and he hates losing

She wrote on Instagram at the time ‘Supporting my big boy’ followed by a football and love heart emoji.
Speaking about his boy one day becoming a professional player, Ronaldo, 36, said: “I would love for him to be a footballer, because he feels passion for this sport. He is a competitor and he hates losing.
“He’s fast and he’s driven. But this is nothing, it takes a lot of dedication.
“Sometimes when we’re at home I say ‘go to the treadmill to run a bit’.
“Then after the treadmill I say, ‘now go to the cold water to recover to do it tomorrow again’. And he says, ‘daddy, it’s so cold the water I don’t want to do it’. But I understand it.”
