Zinedine Zidanes youngest son Eliaz, 7, has signed for the Real Madrid Academy joining his 3 older brothers there as they attempt to follow in their famous fathers footsteps.
His other 3 boys already play for academy teams at the Bernabeu, Enzo, the eldest plays as a midfielder for the under 18 Juvenil A squad, his second son Luca, plays as a goalkeeper in the under 16s team and his third son Theo, plays as a midfielder in the under 11s team.
There will be a lot of pressure to perform on the brothers as they rise thru the ranks at one of the biggest clubs in the world, their fathers exploits in the Spanish capital are legendary and since retiring he has gone on to become sporting director and assistant coach at Real Madrid.
Historically it has proven difficult to follow a famous fathers footsteps with many famous names not being able to live up to their fathers exploits, think Jordi Cruyff, Kasper Schmeichel and the like.
Paolo Maldini has proven it is possible to even surpass his fathers famous name, but with one of the most famous footballing names of all time, the Zidane brothers certainly have a lot to live up to.
