David Beckham’s eldest son, Brooklyn, is training with London club Queens Park Rangers.
Ever since 14-year-old Brooklyn was filmed having a kick around with former Real Madrid greats Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo when he was a small boy, pundits have wondered whether or not he has inherited his father’s football genes.
He is believed to have trained with Chelsea earlier this season, and QPR have now confirmed that Brooklyn has been playing with their Under 14 team.
However, the recently relegated London club insists that Beckham junior has not officially joined the Hoops.
"Contrary to reports, Brooklyn Beckham has been training at #QPR but has not joined our academy," the club stated on its official Twitter account on Tuesday.
Brooklyn’s dad hung up his boots as a professional footballer after winning the French Ligue 1 title with PSG earlier this month, 14 years after joining the Manchester United academy at the same age his son is now.
According to The Guardian, bookmakers are offering odds of 12-1 that Brooklyn will play for England, “but he is only 9-2 to play in the Premier League.”
Perhaps the bookies think that young Brooklyn not only inherited his dad’s football abilities, but also the pin-up footballers wanderlust, which saw him become the only British footballer to win league titles in four different countries.
