Manchester United sacking of Jose Mourinho is currently the biggest news in the World of football at the moment. The Premier League giant has fallen off the cliff in recent years and the crisis continues to get worse. The Red Devils management is currently searching for a Coach ready to take charge for the next sixth months. Today, we want to shift our focus to a more relaxing topic. We want to recognize five twins who played football together from the womb to Premier League.
5. Will & Michael Keane- Hull & Burnley

In September 2016, Will Keane and his twin brother Michael became the first ever twin brothers to play against each other in Premier League. The clash ended 1-1 between Hull City and Burnley. Michael who is a central defender was signed by Everton. The two came through the ranks at Manchester United youth system.

The Swedish twins Martin and Marcus Olsson played 10 matches together at Black Burn Rovers in 2011/12 season. Martin Olsson currently plays for relegated side Swansea City. He joined the Welsh side in January 2017. He has played 45 times for his country as a left back. In fact, he played in Russia World Cup 2018 as his country reached the quarterfinals.
On the other hand, his brother Martin Olsson has not enjoyed a lot of success for both club and country. He currently plays for Championship side Derby County. The defender can still play for Kenya national team because he has never played a competitive match for Sweden. The mother of the twins comes from Kenya.
3. Adam & James- West Brom
Twins Adam & James Chambers played for @WBA in the premier league (for 5 minutes!!)

Adam and James Chambers started their careers at West Brom in the 2002/03 season. In fact, they made their debuts together that year in a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal. The twins also became the first to play together for England at any level when they featured in a youth tournament in 1998/99. Unfortunately, their careers did not live up to the expectation because they ended up playing in the lower Leagues.
