David Beckham took his son Cruz to watch his big brother Romeo play for Brentford’s B team on Monday, but unfortunately the player was kept on the bench.
Doting dad David, 47, kept a low profile beneath a baseball cap when he sat in the stalls at Sutton’s VBS Community Stadium alongside his youngest son Cruz, 18, and the dad-son duo were joined by the latter’s rumoured girlfriend Tana Holding.
Sadly for the Beckhams, 20-year-old Romeo was kept on the bench while his team took on Arsenal’s U21s.
The silver lining? The Brentford Bs secured victory over Arsenal, bagging a penalty kick in the 90th minute of the match.
Romeo confirmed in January that he was joining Brentford Bs on loan from Inter Miami.
Romeo has been at the US club, which is co-owned by his father and coached by Phil Neville, since 2021, and even made an appearance in a game against Barcelona.
With Major League Soccer currently on a break in the States, Romeo joined Brentford a few months back in a bid to maintain his fitness and perfect his skills on the pitch.
After the deal was announced, the second-eldest Beckham child said he is ‘very proud and very happy’ to be in his new kit.
‘I came here at the start to keep fit during the off-season,’ he said. ‘The chance then came to come on loan here, and I’ve never been so excited.’
Romeo added: ‘It was a fun season [in the USA] and there were a lot of ups and downs, but I’m excited to come here and see what I can do.
‘They’ve [the coaches] helped me massively over the last couple of months, and I’m excited to see what else they can help me with to really progress in football.’
Singing Brentford’s praises, he continued: ‘If you look at Brentford as a club, it’s very positive, and it’s a club that is on the rise very quickly.
‘I’m very grateful to be here.’
