Everton star has explained why he only allows his children to have Real Madrid No. 7 shirts in the house to support Ronaldo. Former Napoli midfielder Allan revealed he doesn’t allow his two children to wear Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus jersey due to his lingering loyalties to former club Napoli.
The Everton star previously played in Serie A for Napoli between 2015 and 2020, making 212 appearances for the Partenopei before joining Everton in the Premier League last September in a €25m transfer.
Meanwhile, the 30-year-old’s son Miguel and daughter Manuela are both massive Ronaldo fans and have a lot of his old Real Madrid jerseys.
“They are big fans of Cristiano Ronaldo so he [Miguel] has always had a Ronaldo shirt, however, he is not allowed to have a Ronaldo Juventus shirt because they are massive rivals of Napoli, so there are a lot of Real Madrid No. 7 shirts at home,” the midfielder told Liverpool Echo.
“That is normal. The kids always dream about scoring goals and idolise the goalscorers, my son is no exception.”
Allan, however, recently shaved off his hair in honor of his nine-year-old son Miguel, who suffers from alopecia.
“Definitely, he loves football, he is always watching football, he is always in an Everton shirt and shirts of the other teams I played for,” Allan said of his young boy.
“He’s my greatest motivator, him together with my daughter at home.”
