Leeds legend Tony Yeboah is fondly remembered for his goalscoring antics across England and Germany, but nephew Kelvin may be an even greater striker if he continues his current form.
The 21 year old scored four goals in five matches against Austrian top-flight club Sturm Graz to kick off the season.
Yeboah younger can play for Italy or Ghana as he was born in Africa.
Kelvin, who was called up for both sides within a span of one week, has decided to ignore the offers of the Ghanaian senior team and instead choose to represent the Italian under-21 soccer team.
Speaking for the first time since rebuffing Ghana’s advances, Kelvin’s praised the football in Europe as his reasoning for choosing Italy over his country of birth.
“I came to Italy in 2004 when I was 4-5 years old, I got my passport for quite a while,” said Yeboah, as reported by Ghanasoccernet.
“In terms of football, I played in Monza, Novara, then I went to Gozzano and then to West Ham. Finally in Austria in Tirol Innsbruck and now in Sturm Graz where I am playing the Europa League.

“As a boy, I was very small and thin, I didn’t have much luck at the beginning, and I decided to go to London. I grew up there, I learned other styles of play that have helped me in my career.”
Kelvin is Europe’s best goal scorer, with almost one goal per match.
While he is ahead of Kylian Mbappe (in percentage), Mason Greenwood, and Vinicius Jr (in percentage), he still trails Erling Haland (in goals per game) who has seven goals from five matches for Borussia Dortmund.
Yeboah may have started the season well but still has some catching up to do if he is to match his uncle’s 187 career goals.
Yeboah will also need to face the Liverpool screamer.
