His dad was one of the greatest footballers ever, and now Enzo Zidane appears to be following in Zinedine's footsteps, and in more ways than one (see video). Real Madrid have promoted him out of his age group, it was reported this week.

Zizou the Younger looks set to be playing his football for Real Madrid’s C team this coming season – no mean feat for a young man who, having just turned 18, would normally be expected to tog out for the under-19s.

Enzo, who often uses his mother Veronique’s surname, Fernandez, will be part of the third-tier Real squad that plays in the Segunda B league, Spain’s third division, according to a report by Madrid daily Diario AS on Monday.

His father meanwhile, who scored 37 goals in 155 appearances for Real Madrid, has taken on a new role at the club as newly-appointed manager Carlo Ancelotti's assistant coach.

If Enzo continues his rapid progression through the ranks, the young attacking midfielder could eventually opt to play for France, Spain or even Algeria, through his father’s parents.

Wherever he plies his trade, however, if these videos are anything to go by, the eldest son of Zizou the temperamental genius seems to have more than a little in common with his old man’s style.

Here is Enzo scoring a 25-yard screamer for Real’s youth team against their counterparts from Athletico Madrid, last November.
