Brothers Who Played For The Same Club

Brothers Who Played For The Same Club

With Eden Hazard's younger brother Kylian having joined Chelsea on Tuesday, here are some other siblings who have played for the same club, including two South Africans.

Click through the gallery above to see some brothers who ran out for the same team.

Kylian, who is 22 years old and is Eden's second youngest brother, has joined the Blues' development squad. However, there is also 24-year-old Thorgan, who joined Chelsea in 2012 alongside Eden but never really made it in England, and now plays for Borussia Monchengladbach, 

But this would not be the first time two brothers have donned the same shirt. One of the most famous brother pairings to feature for the same team are Yaya and Kolo Toure. Kolo, the older of the two, joined Manchester City in 2009 and one season later Yaya joined the Citizens from FC Barcelona. Together, they won the 2011/12 Premier League title – the club's first since 1967/68.

Jerome and Kevin-Prince Boateng both came through Hertha Berlin's youth set-up and featured together in the first team in 2007. However, at the end of that season, both followed their own path, with Jerome joining Hamburg and Kevin-Prince moving to Tottenham Hotspur.

Germany internationals Lars and Sven Bender are another famous brother pairing. The duo came through 1860 Munich's youth system and represented the first team of Bayern's cross-town rivals between 2006 and 2009. They then split up and while Lars joined Bayer Leverkusen, Sven moved to Borussia Dortmund. In this window, however, the two brothers were reunited after Sven followed his twin to Leverkusen.

Another pair of siblings who were reunited in this transfer window are AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluca Donnarumma and his older brother Antonio, who joined the Rossoneri in July.

Steve and Roy Wegerle were both born in South Africa and played top level football in Europe. Roy ran out for Chelsea, while Steve played for Feyenoord, but they played together at Tampa Bay Rowdies in the United States towards the end of their careers.

Do you guys understand that such stories are useless for us during the transfer window? Or even after. We need content and not this utter irrelevance of an update. Please let's filter ans assess the importance of our stories and the timeous nature of them
