Romeo Beckham, a son of David Beckham, joins a Premier League B club
Romeo Beckham, the son of former England captain and soccer legend David Beckham, has transferred from MLS NEXT Pro club Inter Miami CF II to Premier League Brentford’s B team for the remainder of the current campaign.
The 20-year-old midfielder will play alongside his new teammates for Brentford’s reserve squad in international and Premier League Cup games.
Beckham told the official Brentford website, “I’m very proud and very happy to be here.”
“I arrived here at the beginning to stay in shape during the offseason. I’ve never been more excited than when I had the chance to come here on loan.
Beckham played for Inter Miami II past season in the MLS NEXT Pro division, making 20 games. He scored two goals and provided 10 assists, the most in the league.
He played as a substitute for Inter Miami, which his father David co-owns, against La Liga team Barcelona in a friendly in July.
There were many ups and downs during the season [in the USA], but he said, “I’m anxious to come here and see what I can achieve.”
“I adore the possibility of playing at all levels, both home and overseas.”
Beckham’s family also expressed their happiness on social media.
“A great way to start the year. The fun and hard work can now start. Proud of you buddy,” David Beckham said alongside a picture of him and Romeo clutching a Brentford jersey at the team’s training facilities on his Instagram story.
Beckham, who is coached by Sam Saunders and Neil MacFarlane for Brentford B, says he wants to continue improving as a footballer by observing the players around him and playing against male teams abroad.
We play some men’s teams over there, and it’s a terrific experience,” Beckham continued. “We’ll see how it can advance me,” you say, “but [I want] to obtain the experience of playing against men and get physically stronger.”
