We’ve seen many footballing families in the beautiful game, although, only a few have had success over different generations. For example, Jordi Cruyff came through Manchester United’s ranks, but was a shadow of his father, the great Johan Cruyff.
However, there’s a new dynasty building at Real Madrid, where former Los Blancos legend, Zinedine Zidane has four sons coming through the ranks. Will they ever be as great as their father? Right now one would think unlikely, but let’s see what happens in the future.
The Fan Park brings you Zizou and his four sons!
Zinedine Zidane – Real Madrid Castilla Manager
He is a man who needs no introduction – Zidane is the current coach of the Castilla side at Real, and has been tipped by club president, Florentino Perez, to one day manage the first team. Let’s Look at his offspring and get our hopes up!
Enzo Zidane Fernandez
The 19-year-old midfielder is the oldest of the lot, and opted to wear his mother’s surname on his shirt, as maybe the pressure of ‘Zidane’ on the back would’ve been too high. Enzo has already played for Spain’s under-19 team, but has the option of representing France or Algeria should he wish to. He plays in the number 10 role, and is said to be joining the Castilla team soon.
Luca Zidane Fernandez
The second oldest of the four boys, Luca has been tipped to become an extremely successful goalkeeper. He currently represents Real Madrid’s under-17 team, and like Enzo, has also wears ‘Fernandez’ on his back, and has the choice to play for Spain, France or Algeria.
Elyaz And Theo Zidane Fernandez
Elyaz is 10, and Theo is 12 and also could choose to play for any of three countries previously mentioned. Both of the boys play for the youth sides at Real Madrid, and like their father, they’re both midfielders.
Let’s hope these boys can make it to the big leagues, but we’re not going to put too much pressure them!
