The Manchester club has fielded brothers of their own in the past. Former England internationals Gary and Phil Neville went on to become iconic figures at Old Trafford after coming through the academy, while Fabio and Rafael da Silva are among football's most famous twins. 

A number of African siblings have also featured in the same team, the most famous of which are former Ivory Coast internationals Kolo and Yaya Toure, who were key players for Manchester City. Current Ghana internationals Andre and Jordan Ayew also donned the same jersey during their shared time at Swansea.
