Like father, like son?

Brooklyn

London: David Beckham’s 13-year-old son Brooklyn had a trial for Chelsea at their Cobham training ground on Tuesday.

Former England captain Beckham is currently without a club after leaving Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of the Major League Soccer season and was pictured on Twitter at the Blues’ Surrey training base.

His attendance for the under-14 fixture at the home of the 2011-2012 Champions League winners will undoubtedly lead to speculation that Brooklyn Beckham is in line to follow in his father’s footsteps to play football at the highest level.

Brooklyn was also on the under-14 roster at the LA Galaxy academy while his dad played in California.

Yet Beckham and his wife Victoria, the Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer, would be reluctant to heap pressure on any of their four children.

Beckham has enjoyed a successful career with Manchester United, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy and AC Milan, while also accumulating 115 England caps, a record for an outfield player.
