Didier Drogba’s son has followed in his footsteps by signing for Guingamp.
Striker Isaac Drogba, 17, has linked up with the top-flight French club’s under-19 side after leaving Chelsea’s academy.
His father posted a message on Instagram, which read: “Couldn’t be more proud of you Isaac Drogba.”
And two other Chelsea legends reacted to the news.
Frank Lampard wrote: “Congratulations! I remember Isaac as the small polite boy! Now a man!”
And ex-Blues captain John Terry said: “Can’t believe how big he is mate, congratulations.”
Didier Drogba is still going strong with MLS side Phoenix Rising at the age of 39.
And Isaac will hope his own career takes anything like the same path’s that his father’s did after he shot to fame in France.
The 104-cap Ivory Coast international played for five different clubs in France as a youth player before getting his breakthrough at Le Mans.
After three and a half seasons in the first-team squad, Didier Drogba then got an £80,000 move to Guingamp and netted 24 goals in 50 games.
Those strikes persuaded Marseille to snap him up, with just a season at L’OM before Blues came calling.
Nine stellar campaigns at Stamford Bridge saw him clinch four Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups and the Champions League across two spells.
One of those Prem titles and a League Cup were scooped in a second stint at Stamford Bridge.

But whether or not Isaac gets close to his medal haul, an interview from 2015 suggests the youngster will not be getting close to his tally of Ivory Coast caps.
Back in 2015, Drogba said: “I asked him which nationality do you want to play for,’ father 36-year-old Didier explained.
“He’s French, but he said he does not want to play for Ivory Coast or France, he wants to play for England.”
