Leicester will play Brentford in their opening fixture. To see them signing Max Dickov, son of Paul, is a thrilling affair for all. Paul had a grand career as a player being at Arsenal, Leeds, Blackburn, Derby, Man City and Leicester among his clubs, all previous league winners.
Max had his first years in senior football at non-league level with Stockport Town before joining this B set up at Brentford which is another special from this non stream football club.
Over the years we have seen this club working their own ways to find talent and develop players with a different career curve than most others, as Max Dickov looks to be one of those type of players.
His father and former Leicester player Paul Dickov knows that up’s and down’s of football and instead of bringing loads of talk into the matter showing support and give advice as school has also been a priority for the young prospect.
We do see sons of former major players at Leicester coming through with the likes of Charlie Savage, Charlie Wellens, Max Dickov and Jayden Danns to just mention a few.
Wellens and Savage are both at Manchester United, Jayden Danns is a Liverpool player and then recently Max Dickov joining Brentford.
In the past Sam Shilton is a name to mention and did play professional but never reaching the fame of his father Peter. Still a good midfielder at several clubs including Plymouth Argyle and Coventry City.
