    I'm not gonna name names, mainly because I can't think of any off the top of my head without searching online.

    So.....can anyone think of players who turned out better then their Dad?

    You'd be quicker making a list of players who didn't e.g hagi as literally every other player is better than their dad lol

    Cesare and Paolo Maldini ? I won't pretend I have seen much of Cesare, however he must have been some defender if he was better than his son.

    See I always thought the majority of players weren't better then their Dad.

    Maybe at the elite level I think it is harder to find players who ended up better as most i feel, couldn't lace their fathers boots

    I think McGeady’s dad played a bit but wasn’t anywhere near as good.

    Aubameyang's Dad was a footballer but the Arsenal player is better. Youri Djorkaeff was another.

    Seems like Gio Reyna will be better than his father Claudio. Christian Pulisic’s father was also professional. Hopefully for the US Tim Weah will be as well but that’s more doubtful.:84:
