Man City winger Weiss: Tough playing for Dad

Manchester City winger Vladimir Weiss admits it's an awkward situation playing for Slovakia while your father is coach.

Weiss Jr expects to keep his place for their clash with Paraguay.

"It is difficult being the manager's son," said the 20-year-old.

"He did not choose to be the manager and then I got into the team. I knew it was going to make it harder for me with my dad being the manager. But the players are okay with it and everyone is being as professional as they can be."
