Video: John Arne Riise takes an ankle-breaker from his team-mate’s son

Juan Jnr is a dirty boy

The jovial surroundings of Roma’s end-of-season party following last week’s match against Torino was probably not the best time for the tiny son of Juan to establish himself as a midfield hardman. But the kid was not going to let some Scandinavian Liverpool reject three times his height take the mickey by shielding the ball.

He did the only thing he could. Of course, if his dad was a truly great footballer…

…then he would have won the ball cleanly and made Riise look even more stupid. He should take some tips from Daniele Maldini, son of Paolo, who owned Clarence Seedorf as Milan celebrated their Champions League triumph in 2007.

    I love how, being a professional footballer, he goes down as if he’s been smashed by a Nemanja elbow.

    Milan needs to go ahead and take the Maldini family number and give it to the little one…class tackle from a little guy…
