The ultimate disappointment: Man United legend David Beckham GUTTED after son’s life-changing decision

David Beckham now has to put all of his faith in Cruz…it doesn’t look good.

It’s a case of two down one to go for Becks, whose hopes of producing an heir to follow in his footsteps in the world of professional football have been dashed after revelations by his 13-year-old son Romeo.

The teenager has opted to follow in the footsteps of his older brother Brooklyn in opting to bow out of football and confirming that he is not looking for a future career in the sport.

Romeo, of course, has other strings to his bow; he already has a modelling job with Burberry, and this is something he will likely pursue.

In an emotional interview, Beckham has admitted that he was devastated by the news that his son had opted to quit the sport, but that he supported his decision.

“The other day Romeo turned round to me and said he didn’t want to play football any more,” Becks admitted to the Radio Times Christmas edition, as per the Mirror.

“Part of me was devastated but part of me was relieved, too,” he continued. “He’s got other passions and I like that.”

While Romeo looks set to pursue a career in modelling, Brooklyn has confirmed on his Instagram page that photography is his true passion, and one he hopes to develop.
