Brothers Who Are Not As Talented As Their Siblings

Brothers Who Are Not As Talented As Their Siblings

Paul and Florentin Pogba are a pair of siblings who both play football, but Florentin doesn't seem to be as good as Paul. Here are 12 other brother pairings, where one wasn't as talented as the other.

Click through the gallery above to see 13 sibling pairings, where one was a better player than the other, as compiled by Squawka.

Yaya and Kolo Toure are one of the most famous brother pairings in football, with both of them reaching the top level at club football as well as for their national teams, but Squawka published a list of brothers where one failed to achieve the same heights as their siblings.

While Paul Pogba is at the top of his game at United, becoming the most expensive signing in history, his brothers Florentin and Mathias are unlikely to play in their brother's league. Florentin currently runs out for Saint-Etienne and Mathias plays for Sparta Rotterdam in the Eredivisie.

Samuel Eto'o is one of Africa's most successful players ever, but his brothers David and Etienne were not as gifted. David has been without a club since playing for Slovenian side FC Koper in 2011, while Etienne last played for FC Lustenau in Austria back in 2012.

Tobias Schweinsteiger is another famous example of a sibling being less talented than his famous brother, in this case Bastian. The former Bayern Munich and Manchester United player has lifted 19 trophies in his career, among them the 2014 FIFA World Cup, while his brother played in Germany's lower leagues. Between 2012 and 2015, he ran out for Bayern's B team and is now assistant coach of Bayern's U17 team after retiring in 2015.

Another famous brother is Kaka's sibling, Digao. He began his career as a centre back but never matched his brother's achievements in football, and retired in 2013.
