Most people would consider having two world class silkmongers in the family as being a bit greedy, but the Laudrups boasted three. Along with Michael and Brian, the Laudrup brothers’ old man Finn was a bloody dandy player in his pomp too, as the following archive footage will duly attest to…

It just goes to show what a dash of the right DNA can do. If you could somehow bottle those Laudrup genes you’d make a fortune.

Here’s the whole clan together…

Finn, now 67, played for a clutch of Danish sides (including Brondby and the club that eventually became FC Copenhagen) as well as a stint in Austria with Weiner Sportclub throughout the 1960s and 70s, picking up 19 international caps in the process – though he was unable to play for the amateur-only Danish national side for almost ten years after becoming a full-time pro in 1968.

How about that?
