The former ace soccer star of England gets candid about how his son is under immense pressure to be as good in the field as he is.
David Beckham seemed to lament as he spoke about how one of his sons is not quite sure about playing soccer as he speaks under pressure.
According to The Telegraph, the 40-year-old star ex-star soccer player said that while it would make him happy if his sons become professional soccer players when they grow up, he won’t force them to do so. They should only do it if playing soccer made them happy.
David said while speaking to ABC News that one of his sons told him the other day that he was not very sure of playing football all the time.
He confessed that his son’s statement broke his heart a little. His son told Beckham that every time he steps onto the soccer field, people address him as Beckham’s son and so if he is not as good as his dad; it is not good enough for him.
David was quick enough to advise his son that he should play the game only if he wants to play it. Beckham and Victoria have three sons- Cruz, 10, Romeo, 13, and Brooklyn 16 but he did not share which one had confessed about his fears about a future in soccer.
Both Brooklyn and Romeo have demonstrated a promising beginning to their soccer careers and Romeo had recently served as a mascot of England’s qualifier match against Switzerland.
Brooklyn, Beckham’s eldest son was promoted to Arsenal’s under-18 soccer team recently but he apparently left the prestigious training academy of the club as he wanted to focus on his A-Levels.
It seems that Harper, the celebrity couple’s 4-year-old daughter told her parents that she wants to play football like her dad.
