Didier Drogba’s son recently signed for a former team of his in France, showing that talent clearly runs in the family. Here are more sons who have represented the same clubs as their fathers!

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery to see 10 sons who played for the same club as their fathers, according to Transfermarkt!

It was announced this week that Drogba’s 17-year-old son, Isaac, has officially joined French Ligue 1 club Guingamp, the club Drogba made his professional debut for in 2002.

Another son of an African legend, Timothy Weah, is currently contracted to his father George’s former side Paris Saint-Germain, where the legendary Liberian scored 46 goals in 120 matches.

Enzo Zidane formerly played for the club his dad, Zinedine, represented in his glittering career, while current Manchester United defender Daley Blind followed in his father Danny’s footsteps at Ajax Amsterdam.

FC Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets still plays for the club his father, Carles, played for from 1990 until 1999, while the gallery also includes Xabi Alonso, who followed in his dad’s path at Real Sociedad in Spain, before his big move to Liverpool.

Another footballing family at the Catalan giants was the late Johan and his son Jordi Cruyff. Although he showed promise early on, Jordi was unable to emulate his father at the Blaugrana, with injuries eventually cutting his career short.

Juan Sebastien Veron and his dad, Juan Ramos, both represented Estudiantes in Argentina, while Frank Lampard and his father, also named Frank, famously both played for West Ham United in the Premier League.

Paolo & the late Cesare Maldini also feature in the gallery, with the Italians having both worn the famous colours of AC Milan during their illustrious careers.
