Cristiano Ronaldo and Nemanja Matic’s goal for Manchester United against Chelsea has been recreated by their sons in a wholesome video. 

Serbian midfielder Matic, 33, set to leave the club at the end of the season, played a beautiful chipped through ball to Portuguese forward Ronaldo, who took a touch and slammed it past Edouard Mendy to equalise for the Red Devils at Old Trafford.

And their kids teamed up to re-enact the moment in a heartwarming clip posted to social media after the game.

The caption reads: ‘Just Cristiano Ronaldo and Nemanja Matic’s sons recreating their father’s goal/assist against Chelsea,’ followed by a heart emoji. One fan posted underneath the tweet saying: ‘That’s so wholesome’. 

In the clip, Matic’s son Filip plays the ball through to Cristiano Ronaldo Jr, who slams the ball hard and low into the back of the net.

The pair then embrace, arms out, and run towards the camera, saying ‘siiii’ to celebrate as 37-year-old Ronaldo Sr does. 

Both Filip and ‘Cristianito’ are officially contracted as United academy players.

Ronaldo Jr signed a professional deal with the club in February, wearing the famous No 7 shirt, just like his dad. 

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner, however, does not plan to pressure his child to enter the world of football like him.

In a Netflix docuseries about his partner Georgina, he said: ‘Only time will tell. I will never pressure him. He will do what he wants.

‘Also what I want the most for Cristianito and everyone else is that they’re happy and that they choose what they want. I will support in any way.’
