Ronaldo’s children

Ronaldo already had four children, before he announced last October that he and partner Georgina were expecting twins. One of the twins has now passed away.

One of his kids, Cristiano Jr, plays for Manchester United’s academy team.

Manchester United will give Ronaldo the full support he needs, as will the club’s legions of fans.

It is unclear whether Ronaldo will play for Manchester United against Liverpool on Tuesday night, but with the greatest respect to the game, it takes on a real lack of significance in the light of a death of a child.

Ronaldo could be given time off and there will be no expectation on him to play. While it is a difficult fixture, United will most likely simply have to do without him – and there will be full understanding for the reasons why.

Cristiano Ronaldo: One of the greatest ever

  1. Ronaldo signed for Manchester United in 2003

    United paid just £12 million to sign Ronaldo from Sporting. He went onto score 118 goals for United and won the Premier League title three times.

  2. A five times Champions League winner

    Ronaldo won the Champions League for Manchester United in 2008. He then went on to win the trophy a staggering four more times with Real Madrid.

  3. Goal hungry superstar

    Ronaldo once netted 42 goals in a season at United, a figure he smashed at Real Madrid. He once scored 61 goals in a single season for Real and 60 in another. He scored 101 goals in his last three years at Juventus alone.

  4. International star

    Ronaldo broke the all-time international goal scoring record in 2021 to move clear as the most prolific player ever for his country.

  5. Multiple time Ballon d’Or winner

    Ronaldo has now won the Ballon d’Or Award five times, finishing in second place on six occasions.
