Famous footballers' sons who were handed debuts by their fathers

On Saturday, in what was the last league fixture for Real Madrid, Zinedine Zidane handed his second son, Luca Zidane (a goalkeeper), his Real Madrid debut.

This wasn't the first instance of a famous footballer handing his son his debut and here, Sportstar looks at three other such cases.

Enzo Zidane

Back in 2016, Zinedine Zidane handed his son Enzo his senior debut in a friendly against Paris Saint-Germain. Enzo came on at half-time, when PSG was leading the match 3-0. The match ended 3-1, with Enzo playing the second 45' under the watchful eyes of his father.

Jordi Cruyff

Son of the legendary Johan Cruyff, Jordi made his Barcelona senior team debut in 1994, when Johan was the manager. He went on to make 41 appearances in two seasons for the Catalan giant, scoring 11 goals in that time.

Tom Ince

Son of Paul Ince, Tom was given his Notts County debut by father Tom, who was the manager of the club at that time and Ince had joined it as a loanee from Liverpool in 2010.
