Dad once gave up football because he didn’t want to follow in David Beckham’s footsteps. Focused on tennis. But whose blood is football, how far he can stay away? Romeo Beckham, who returned to football two years ago, has now joined the Premier League club Brentford. He will play in Brentford’s B team for the remainder of the 2022–23 season.
20-year-old Romeo has been with the American club Inter Miami for so long. His father David Beckham is one of the owners of the American club. David was by Romeo’s side when he signed up for Brentford on loan from Miami. Before that, Romeo played in the Arsenal youth team in 2014.
However, he said that he will leave football next year and play tennis with Andy Murray. He decided to return to football again in 2020. David then converted the tennis court built by his son into a football pitch. Take to play in the ‘Inter Miami Two’ team. Romeo is the second of David Beckham’s four children. However, like his father, Romeo was the first to take football as a profession.
But it’s not about football legend David Beckham, but about David Beckham’s son Romeo.
Like his father, Romeo plays as a winger or on the right side of the midfield. In 2022, he played 20 matches in MLS Next Pro, a reserve league of Major League Soccer (MLS). Scored 2 goals, and made 10. Apart from this, he also played 6 minutes in the pre-season friendly match against Barcelona for the Inter Miami main team in July last year.
Brentford B team coach Neil McFarlane said, “Whoever comes into the team, he will be important there.” I love Romeo on and off the field. He is very clever in field games. Can cross the ball quickly, and can pull. Also very good as a finisher. He has the ability to play in multiple positions for our team.
Whether or not Romeo gets a chance to play in Brentford’s first team will depend on his performance for the B team.
