David Beckham’s 13-year-old son Brooklyn is training with Chelsea Under-14s.
The former England skipper was at their Cobham training ground to watch his son trial for the Chelsea youth side. Brooklyn was formerly a member of the LA Galaxy academy set-up.
Brooklyn is looking for a new team after the family relocated back to London.
One player Cole Dasilva said: “David Beckham’s son Brooklyn is on trial for my team… David Beckham was watching our training session tonight!! Madness.” and when questioned about Brooklyn’s ability, Dasilva added: “He’s decent.”
David Beckham spoke to the Times recently and raised uncertainty over whether his children will follow in his illustrious footsteps. “They’ve got a great life set up for them… Obviously our 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…”
The Blues are expected to inspect Brooklyn on a few more occasions before making their decision on the teenager.
