David Beckham has been spotted at Liverpool watching his 15-year-old son Brooklyn play for Arsenal.
The former Manchester United star was happy to pose for pictures alongside locals and youth team players as his son turned out for the Gunners at Liverpool's training ground at Kirkby.
Brooklyn is attempting to follow in his father's illustrious footsteps and carve a career out in the game and has made a strong start having been selected for Arsenal's U18 squad for their recent game against Leicester alongside the likes of Ashley Maitland-Niles and Gedion Zelalem, both of who have turned out for the first team.
David Beckham has a strong connection with Arsenal despite starting his career with Tottenham, and trained with the Gunners on three separate occasions in the off-season during his stint with LA Galaxy between 2008 and 2013.
Recently he turned out for Arsenal U16's and posted a video of himself crashing a shot into the crossbar during a game.

David Beckham of course retired from the game in 2013 at the age of 38, having spent the final months of his career with Paris Saint-Germain.
He made his name with Manchester United were he won the Champions League in 1999, before moving to Real Madrid in 2003.
Overall he lifted 19 trophies including 10 league titles, and also turned out for AC Milan in two loan spells between 2009 and 2010. Beckham was also the first English player to score at three consecutive World Cup finals and has the joint-second most goal assists in European Championship finals history having won 115 for the Three Lions - a record for an outfield player.
Does anyone know how good Brooklyn Beckham actually is? The lingering doubts for the time being are that Arsenal promoted him to their U18's for any other reason than the publicity.
Of course Arsenal would never pick a player just for his name and he may well prove his doubters wrong, but the promotion for the game against Leicester looks a bit iffy. It could be entirely innocent, but that is the sort of obstacle that Brooklyn Beckham will have to face throughout his career.
