Video: Sydney Van Hooijdonk Has Grown Up to Take a Mean Free-Kick Like His Dad

Video: Sydney Van Hooijdonk Has Grown Up to Take a Mean Free-Kick Like His Dad

It looks like Sydney van Hooijdonk has been watching some of his dad’s old clips, judging by his own recent video.

The son of former Celtic, Feyenoord, Fenerbahce and Holland striker Pierre is starting to torment defences and goalkeepers with his own unique brand of dipping and swerving set-pieces.

Back in the 90s and early 00s, Pierre became one of the content’s most-feared free-kick specialists, which helped lead Feyenoord to an unlikely UEFA Cup triumph back in 2002.

And now his son is proving that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Sydney, who is now 16, plays for Dutch side NAC Breda’s Under-17s, and PSV Eindhoven’s youth team were on the receiving end of van Hooijdonk special last week:

Previously, we’ve told you all about Henrik Larsson’s son Jordan, who is one of Swedish football’s most promising young talents.

If Celtic’s scouts have anything about them, they’ll try and pair Jordan and Sydney together for the start of the 2017/18 campaign!
