The chances of David Beckham finding an heir to the Beckham footballing bloodline is in serious doubt, after middle son Romeo decided to quit the game.
As revealed by the Mirror, 13-year-old Romeo has followed in his older brother Brooklyn’s footsteps by ending a potential career in the game. The teenager, who already has carved out a modelling job with Burberry, was not affiliated with an academy of some sort.
Beckham Snr. spoke of the matter, “Part of me was devastated but part of me was relieved, too. He’s got other passions and I like that”. This is the second time that the former Manchester United and Real Madrid winger has seen a child move away from their father’s occupation.
16-year-old Brooklyn, the eldest of the four Beckham children, was on the books of Arsenal at one point, but after being released by the Gunners, has since moved on to find an interest in photography.
