Father hugs son as Beckham replaces Beckham

It is not your average father son kick about

 

16-year-old Brooklyn Beckham has followed in his dad’s footsteps as he took to the pitch at Old Trafford.

The footballer, who spent 11 years of his career as Manchester United’s top midfielder, played a charity match alongside his son for UNICEF on Saturday.

Brooklyn was subbed on for the former England player for the last 15 minutes of the game.

Speaking after the match David said: “Having Brooklyn out there is special.

“One of my last memories at Manchester United is winning the premiership and walking round with Brooklyn at 18 months old.

“I’m very proud of what we achieved. It’s been a special day.”

The 40-year-old was called back on the pitch towards the end of the match, where he then ended up passing the ball to his son, something he said “could never happen again on that scale”.

Wearing the same shirt as his dad writing on his Instagram Brooklyn said: “Matching outfit matching moonrocks”

Adding: “What an amazing experience to play with some of the best players in the world. I will always remember this moment. #MatchforChildren.”

Beckham’s other three children, Romeo, Cruz and Harper-Seven, served as mascots at the match while proud mum Victoria watched on.

Also writing on Instagram, the former Spice Girl said:  “I love my boys. Incredible game today for a wonderful cause @unicef.”

But it seemed that the love of football wore thin for David’s little girl Harper.

The four-year-old was pictured looking a sleepy and yawning while standing between two of her brothers.
