Tottenham's Giovani dos Santos: Football in the family

Tottenham dazzler Giovani dos Santos admits football runs in the family.

He revealed to Hotspur magazine: "With my dad and my two brothers being players, it's very much a football family, so it was inevitable that I would end up in the game.

"I always watched my dad when I was younger. He's the one I saw when I was a kid, he was the one I looked up to and he's been my trainer all the way - he taught me how to play football. He had a very good career in Mexico so he's very well known. But he had a lot of luck to have three boys that have all turned out to be professionals."
