David Beckham’s eldest son, Brooklyn wants to gain fame, wealth and technique on the field like his father did.
The 14-year-old tried out for Chelsea FC at the club’s state of the art training groung in Cobham last week Tuesday. According to a source, “Brooklyn is like any teenager with an ambition to be a footballer. He has just returned to England and wanted to see how he fared. Chelsea are one of the strongest academies in the country. The difference is that he is the son of the former England captain and this will draw attention.”
Brooklyn was previously on the Under 14 roster at the LA Galaxy academy while his dad played in California but has since left the club after his father played the last game for the team. “They’ve got a great life set up for them,” Beckham said of his children’s lives. “Obviously are boys and little girl are very lucky. But I think, as a parent, you always worry: ‘Have they got the hunger that I had as a kid?’ I’m as hard on my boys as my dad was. They always ask, “Did I play well?” I’ll say, “You did alright, could have done better…”‘
Since leaving LA Galaxy, Beckham has attracted interest from QPR and West Ham in the Premier League, and Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain in France.
