Manchester United legend David Beckham has revealed that one of his three sons supports Arsenal.

The 37-year-old former England captain, now plying his trade at LA Galaxy in the MLS, revealed the news in an exclusive interview with Shortlist magazine.

Beckham - who enjoyed over a decade at Old Trafford under the tutelage of Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson - insists that his former club remains very close to his heart.

But, after a charm offensive from Gunners boss Arsene Wenger following a recent visit to the Emirates Stadium, 10-year-old Romeo opted for Arsenal ahead of Manchester United, unlike his older brother Brooklyn, 12, and younger brother Cruz, 6.

"I tried to get Manchester United shirts on them early," joked Beckham. "Two of them are Man United fans and one of them's an Arsenal fan. I don't know how it happened.

"Actually, I do know how it happened. I took Romeo to an Arsenal game and Arsene Wenger treated him so well – gave him a shirt with his name on the back and his favourite number.

"I had that when I was a kid with Man United."

One-year-old daughter Harper Seven is yet to decide where her allegiance lies. Beckham added: "I'll let them support whoever they want."
