CLICK HERE to enter our competition for free, as we build up to Father’s Day on Sunday June 18.Nepotism isn’t really an option in the world of football.It doesn’t matter how good you’re dad was at the game – if you want to become a top player, success comes down to what you do on the pitch.In fact, having a famous footballing father can be more of a hindrance than a help, as the weight of a celebrated surname can weigh heavily on young shoulders.But for those with the talent and desire – we’re looking at you, Frank Lampard (Junior, as the Chelsea legend was once known) – a fantastic football career may still await.Take a look at 10 young players hoping to make their own strides in the game, having been brought up by famous footballing fathers. 10 10 Diego Poyet’s career started brightly, but he has a way to go to emulate former Chelsea and Spurs star Gus – The 22-year-old (pictured above, left) was born in Spain when his father played for Zaragoza, and was raised in England following Gus move to Chelsea. The elder Poyet was a prolific goalscoring midfielder, but Diego has established himself as a composed playmaker, starting his career at Charlton before moving to West Ham. However, his development stalled in east London, and his contract was cancelled by the Hammers in August 2016. He now plays for Godoy Cruz in Argentina, and has made appearances for the youth teams of both England and Uruguay. 10 Diego Simeone’s son Giovanni has turned into a star at Genoa – Diego Simeone is one of the best managers in the world, and his son Giovanni has the potential to be one of the best strikers in the world in a few years. Starting his career at River Plate, he earned a move to Italian club Genoa last summer, and proceeded to score 12 goals in 31 games at the age of just 21. He is an Argentina youth international, and has been praised for his work rate and energy showing the same tenacious approach to the game his father had. Justin Kluivert is already playing for Ajax, the club where his father Patrick won the Champions League – Patrick won seven honours with Ajax, including Europes biggest honour in 1995, scoring 50 goals in 97 matches for the Dutch club. He also played for Milan, Barcelona and Newcastle, and his son Justin is already making an impact in the Netherlands. Just 18, the attacker has scored two goals for Ajax, and is highly rated in the Dutch international youth teams. 10 10 10 Enrico Chiesa’s son Federico is already making a name for himself in Italy – Enrico was a talented striker who played for a number of clubs in the 1990s and 2000s, also making 22 appearances for Italy. His son, Federico, is also a forward who has started to establish himself at Fiorentina. The 19-year-old has played 27 times, and has also appeared for the Azzurri at Under-19, U20 and U21 level. Marcus Thuram is a striker who will hope to play for France like his father Lilian – Former Juventus and Barcelona defender Lilian Thuram remains the most-capped player in the history of the France national team, and his son Marcus will be hoping to break that record. Unlike his father, the 19-year-old is a striker, and he made his first-team debut for Sochaux in 2015. He has gone on to play 43 games for the Ligue 2 club, scoring one goal, and has also been capped at every youth level for France from Under-17 to Under-20. Enzo Zidane (above, middle) will be hoping to emulate his father Zinedine Zidane – The elder Zidane has just won two consecutive Champions Leagues as Real Madrid manager, adding to the one he claimed when a player at the Bernabeu. Son Enzo has spent his entire career with Real, progressing through their youth ranks to finally make his first-team debut this season scoring in a Copa del Rey win over Cultural Leonesa. He has a long way to go to emulate the world class feats of his father, but under the elders guidance he could reach the top of the game. 10 10 Mitchel Bergkamp has a long way to go to emulate his father, Arsenal legend Dennis – Dennis Bergkamp remains one of the greatest and most influential men to have ever played football, and his son, Mitchel, will be hoping to follow in his footsteps. A 19-year-old attacking midfielder, Bergkamp is a member of second tier side Almere City’s youth academy and has yet to make a first-team appearance or any youth appearances for the Netherlands. Emulating the elder Bergkamp was always going to be a challenge, but Mitchel could yet make it himself as a pro. 10 10 Ianis Hagi has developed into a talented youngster under the eye of his father Gheorghe – The elder Hagi, a true great of the game who played for both Barcelona and Real Madrid, founded Romanian club Viitorul Constanta in 2009, with Ianis joining the side. He established himself as a key player, earning comparisons with his father due to his playmaking abilities and creative style of play. Regarded as one of the best young talents in Europe, he earned a move to Fiorentina last summer, and has played twice for the Italian club. A Romanian youth international, the 18-year-old was nominated for the 2017 European Golden Boy award, and is tipped to enjoy a top career. Niall Keown will hope to follow in the footsteps of Arsenal legend Martin – The elder Keown had to leave Arsenal for playing time when a youngster, and established himself at Aston Villa and Everton before returning to the Gunners. He ended up playing 43 times for England, and his son, Niall, also a defender, is starting to make a name for himself at Reading. Starting lower down the football pyramid, rather than needing to drop down like his father, Keown, 22, has played twice for Reading and spent part of 2017 on loan with Partick Thistle. He has also been capped at youth level for Ireland, and he could start to establish himself with the Royals next season. Could young Isaac Drogba follow his dad into the pro game? – saac, now 17 (pictured above a few years ago), is the son of Chelsea legend Didier, and has played for the Blues at youth level. The younger Drogba has made it clear he would represent England at international level, should he go on to become a top level footballer. However, playing for any national team is a long way off for Isaac, who currently appears more focused on getting A Levels than a pro contract.
