Diego Poyet, son of Chelsea and Prem Great Gus, started his career at Charlton Athletic.

The Uruguayan made his debut for Charlton in January 2014 and was named Player of the Year in the same season before leaving after his contract ended.

Poyet then joined Prem team West Ham and signed a four-year deal.

He made his Prem debut in August 2014 when he came on as a substitute in the 3-1 win against Crystal Palace.

The tenacious midfielder was on loan for Huddersfield, MK Dons and Charlton during his time at West Ham.

Poyet also played for the Hammers in Europa League qualifiers before his contract was terminated in 2016.

After his sacking, Poyet played for Argentinian club Godoy Cruz, followed by Cypriot club Pafos.

Neither club worked and Poyet retired from football at the age of 23.

Poyet has since found a passion for working out and building muscle, and looks ripped on his Instagram.

He helps coach people and is easily accessible by offering customized nutrition and exercise plans.

However, Poyet has not left football entirely as father Gus is still involved in management.

The handsome, bearded 27-year-old appeared to work with his father at Chilean club Club Deportivo Universidad Catolica.

And with father Gus now working in international management with Greece, Diego has been spotted on the training ground in Greek attire.
