Gio Simeone emerges from the shadow of El Cholo as one of Europe’s top young strikers


There are advantages and disadvantages to being the son of such a high-profile Argentine icon like Diego Simeone. On the one hand, the young player can learn from the experience and wisdom of his father. On the other, they can be crushed under the weight of expectation.
