Brooklyn Beckham shows potential in Arsenal under-16s game

Brooklyn Beckham may well have the qualities his dad David possesses having shared a video of himself in action for Arsenal.

The 15-year-old, oldest son to David and Victoria Beckham, shared a clip of him representing the Gunners' under-16 side in which he almost scored a goal his old man would have been proud of.

Playing on the right-wing, the teenager hits a sweet half-volley and is only denied a goal by a brilliant fingertip save from the goalkeeper which pushes the ball onto the bar.

It's perhaps a sign there may be another Beckham playing in the Premier League in the coming years, although Manchester United supporters may be somewhat disappointed it will be for Arsenal.

The ex-England captain's other two sons, Romeo and Cruz, have also had training at Chelsea in the past.

Brooklyn also had trials at Chelsea in autumn last year before deciding to sign a short-term deal with the Gunners.

David was at the Blues' training ground himself on Monday, stopping to have a photo with John Terry's daughter, which also appeared on the social media site. The Chelsea captain and Beckham have been close friends every since their time together as England team-mates.

Beckham retired from football in 2013 at the age of 38. He made 115 appearances for England and won six Premier League titles and the Champions League with United.

He also played for Real Madrid, Los Angeles Galaxy, AC Milan and Paris Saint Germain, lifting another 10 league titles.
