Everton midfielder Allan reveals he has banned his son from buying a Cristiano Ronaldo jersey because ‘Juventus are massive rivals of Napoli.’
The Brazilian spent most of his career in Italy, at Udinese from 2012 and then Napoli for five years.
During an interview with the Liverpool Echo, Allan confessed he put his foot down when it comes to Bianconeri memorabilia.
“(My son Miguel) loves football, he is always watching football, he is always in an Everton shirt and shirts of the other teams I played for. He’s my greatest motivator, him together with my daughter at home.
“They are big fans of Cristiano Ronaldo so he 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 No7 shirts at home. That is normal.
“The kids always dream about scoring goals and idolise the goalscorers, my son is no exception.”
Allan recently shaved his head as a gesture of solidarity with his nine-year-old son, who suffers from alopecia.
“My face doesn’t really help but it is not a problem as I am married and have three kids and my wife finds me attractive whichever way I present it!”
