My dear sons are training this week with #Besiktas. Back to @JSHercules next week,” Amokachi writes.

The 18-year-olds, Nazim and Kalim play as forwards like their dad although one of them is left-footed. The twins also had trials at Everton Under-13s where their dad also played.

They were however not offered any contract by the Premier League club.

Beside the twins, Amokachi has a third child with his Tunisian wife, Nadia.

Contrary to widespread report that the former Super Eagles forward met his wife during the African Cup of Nations in Tunisia 94, Amokachi revealed that he and his wife met in France.

I met her first at a show, where I was modelling in France. She was a model too and we got talking but did not exchange contact information,” the former Super Eagles assistant coach once told Nation Newspaper in an interview.

Our paths, again, came together in Tunisia and that was how the relationship was sparked. She is the mother of my three children and we are still very much together.”
