In a fascinating insight into what it is like growing up as the son of a Villa legend, Steve Withe reveals how he was bullied as a child because of who is father is, but how he has learned to love Peter Withe the Villa hero but, more importantly, Peter Withe his dad.
With his mum Kathy cheering on Withe in Rotterdam, Steve was looked after back home by the family of Norman Bodell, a coach the striker befriended in his time at Wolves.
There he was picked on by pupils for having a famous dad and it was with relief that he was uprooted for a school in Yorkshire when Withe senior moved to Huddersfield Town in the final days of his playing career.
Soon, however, the family were back in Birmingham, with Withe appointed as assistant boss to Jozef Venglos before taking on a youth development role.
