It looks like Didier Drogba’s Isaac is following in his father’s footsteps, having joined French side Guingamp.
The 17-year-old’s move to the club comes some 16 years after his dad turned out for the Ligue 1 also-rans, where he made a name for himself before moving to Marseille.
The Chelsea legend announced his son’s move to his former club via his Instagram account, writing: “Couldn’t be more proud of you.”
Isaac Drogba, who’s Didier’s eldest son and plays as a striker – just like his dad – previously played for Chelsea’s youth academy, but switched to the side Didier moved to for £80,000 from Le Mans back in 2002.
Drogba played in just one full season for the minnows, scoring 24 goals in 50 appearances, before moving to Marseille in 2003.
Of course, he then ended up moving to Chelsea in 2004 and won pretty much everything during his time at Stamford Bridge.
Fittingly, two of his former Blues teammates wrote the best comments on the picture.
Frank Lampard wrote: “Congratulations! I remember Isaac as the small polite boy! Now a man!”, while former captain John Terry wrote: “Can’t believe how big he is mate, congratulations.”
Didier, who’s now 39, currently turns out for United Soccer League side Phoenix Rising.
