There's not a great deal of brothers that both have the ability to play football, there's even less that get the chance to play for the same side.
Apart from the Alcantara brothers who represented Barcelona and that ugly pair that played over the Pennines, it's a massive rarity.
With the news last week that Ronaldo Vieira has signed a fresh deal at the club that will see his stay at LS11 for at least three more seasons, news also broke that we had signed his brother Romario on a 12-month contract.
Both players moved to the UK after a spell with Benfica's youth system and both players occupy the same position in midfield. Ronaldo and Romario both attended the now famed i2i academy which has now seen three players join professional football clubs, with the Vieira brothers and recent Doncaster hotshot Alfie Beestin also coming from the York/Tadcaster based academy.
Ronaldo signing a prolonged deal will be a sigh of relief for many fans as the club have handed a youth prospect a deal that lasts longer than 2 years, finally! The young combative midfielder has shown real promise and definitely seems in Head Coach Garry Monk's plans for this season.
With Romario, many fans will be hoping to see a lot of the same. However, we are lucky enough to get an entirely different beast in midfield.
Having been lucky enough to watch Romario in action, he is an entirely different type of midfielder. Whereas Ronaldo likes to carry the ball forward and looks to attack head on, Romario is brilliant at dropping back and protecting the back four.
His ability to track a players movement and wait until the correct time to make a challenge makes him a great addition to our squad. If there's anything our bloated midfield is lacking, it's a prosper defensively minded midfielder.
Overall, I'm excited to watch both these talents grow at Leeds and I hope that with their promise, comes a legacy that sees these two fantastic and well respected young midfielders blossom at Elland Road and become a real threat for years to come.
Now let's give them the support they need and watch them grow to be stars in that white kit!
