The kid’s full name is Cristofer Roberto da Silva Horváth. He has just returned to Hungary for visiting the grandparents and participating in a TV show shooting with commercial channel TV2, tabloid blikk.hu reported. However, Cristofer lives with his mother in Madrid, and of course he plays for a Real Madrid youth team. The kid says he wants to become at least as good player as his father was. If he will be able to meet the expectations, he could be invited either to the Brazilian, Spanish or Hungarian national team in the future. According to his mother, Cristofer inherited a lots of things from Robert Carlos, not only his Brazilian blood but also his dancing ability, movement and his passion for football and sports.
