The former Chelsea, Millwall and Wimbledon enforcer idolised QPR as a boy. So you can imagine that he is one of the proudest men in the whole of Britain today as his son, Henry, heads to West London on trial.
According to West London Sport, QPR are running the rule over Wise Jr with a contract on the cards.
Henry Wise, who is a midfielder like his father, spent time in the QPR academy before moving to Arsenal four years ago. He is now a third-year scholar at Derby County but it is understood that a return to the capital is on the cards.
Should Wise impress the QPR coaches, he could reunite with Lewis Walker, the former Derby youngster (below, left) who joined The Rs earlier in the month after a brief trial period.
Wise started as QPR's U23s took on London rivals Charlton on Monday afternoon but was forced off before the interval after a clash of heads. Though the teenager will surely get further chances to impress over the coming weeks.
Speaking to Chelsea TV in 2016, father Dennis raved about his son’s talent – though admitted that they don’t quite share the same mentality on the football pitch.
"He's a centre-midfielder – he can play and he's not as horrible as me, he's got a niceness about him. That's his mum's side!”
