Ex-Prem stars’ sons join rivals
Former Premier League stars Emile Heskey and Lee Grant looked proud as their sons celebrated their move to Manchester City.
The former striker, who played for Liverpool and England, and the ex-Manchester United goalkeeper, who retired this summer, were only too happy to don the Citizens’ colors after Jaden Heskey and True Grant signed their respective scholarship deals.
The duo were among 14 youngsters who dedicated their future to Champions Academy after impressing in City’s lower age groups.
All of the starlets will now be part of the U18 squad this season and have already started pre-season training with head coach Ben Wilkinson.
The other teenagers who signed contracts were Joel Ndala, Jahmai Simpson Pusey, Justin Oboavwoduo, Isaiah Dada-Mascoll, Lakyle Samuel, Michael Okeke, Alfie Harrison, Ashton Muir, Charlie Gray, Ezra Carrington, Sebastian Naylor and Jacob Wright.
However, it was the descendants of Heskey and Grant who made headlines as they sought to follow in their fathers’ footsteps.
