Apr 6, 2019 5:49 PM

Cruzeiro have signed Ronaldinho's son, Joao Mendes de Assis Moreira, to his first professional contract.

The forward, who signed a multi-year deal with the club, will begin his career in the U-14's. 

Cruzeiro added that they were unaware of the connection between Joao and Ronaldinho.

"He's a promising player with an interesting style. I believe it won't take too long for him to go pro. He's really athletic and has great technique. He can play both the striker and center attacking midfielder positions. He's tall, but he can run. He can put it in the back of the net too," said youth team director Amarildo Ribereiro.
