It’s obvious that kids grow up imitating their parents and elders. Even the football industry is full of fascinating stories of blood-bonded players and long-lasting family feuds. Some find themselves sharing the same passion, hobbies, and careers with their brothers. Today, we will take a look at the top 5 siblings who made it to the professional football career.
5. Ayew brothers
Ghanaian brothers, Andre and Jordan Ayew, are the sons of Abedi Pele, one of the greatest African footballers of all-time. The Ayew boys established themselves as Ligue 1 royalty (Andre in Marseille and Jordan in Lorient) before making it to the Premier League. Now Andre is in Fenerbahçe, on loan from Swansea City, while Jordan plays for Crystal Palace.
