Has a father ever played against his son in a top professional league game? I'm sure I've read that the Laudrups played with their father in Danish football but I'm not sure about actually opposing teams having a father and son in them.

I'm asking because I was reading recently about Joćo Pinto's recent retirement from football and the fact that he couldn't realise his final dream of playing alongside his son Tiago in a professional game. There was no real chance left that they would play together but if Joćo Pinto had kept going for another season there could've been a possibility of them opposing one another.

I can imagine playing with your son would be a really proud moment, but playing against your son or father must be completely surreal and I'd be interested to hear if it has ever happened.

I've a sneaky suspicion Johnny Astons Jr and Sr played on the same team, possibly at PNE. I'll have a dig around in my stattotastic books to see if I can find out more.

There's a famous story about the Gudjohnsen's in Iceland of course, Son (Eidur) coming on for his Father.

Maybe I'm confusing Gudjohnsen for Laudrup.

I played with Ray Wilkins' son against him in a fathers/sons pre season match for my sunday league team. Does that count?

Teddy Sheringham signed for Colchester in the hope of playing against his son Charlie, who is at Palace, but Charlie's a long way from the first team (he was fifth choice for the youth team at Ipswich, behind younger players when we let him go), that it's not going to happen.

Steveeeee, I don't think you are confusing the Laudrups. I'm pretty sure that Michael overlapped with his father for at least a year at KB and/or Brondby. Brian is too young to have done that except in a friendly.

Paolo Maldini was also hoping to pull it off at Milan, but it doesn't look like it will happen.

According to Wiki, Laudrup senior's final season at Brondby was 81-82, while Michael's first season there was 82-83.

Michael Laudrup was briliant, wasn't he? One of my top three players ever, easily.

Keith Curle and his son were both registered as players at the same time at Mansfield. I don't know whether they played together, though.

I am pleased to share with you the priceless information that my eldest and I were on the team that won the Gosnells Six-a-Side competition two years ago.

We also played together a couple of times in charity matches. He then asked me to stop playing as it was embarrassing the family name.

I thought this was going to be a thread about Fathers who had sons who supported a different team...

Not what you're looking for but in the UEFA Cup a couple of years ago, Rapiud Bucharest (coached at that time by Razvan Lucescu) played Shakhtor Donetsk (coached, still, by his dad, Mircea)

Chris Kamara's kid is a season ticket holder at Huddersfield. I bet that pisses him off something chronic...

Has the 'ebullient' Ian Wrighty never lined up against SWP?

Don't think so - Shaun Wright-Phillips didn't get into the City team regularly until about 2001/02 at least, Ian Wright retired in 2000, the only time he was playing in the same division as his son was 99/2000 for about 10 games before he moved to Celtic, however Shaun hadn't made his league debut by this point.
