Now, their kids have an opportunity to step into the limelight - with this opportunity, however, comes pressure. Specifically, the pressure of being in the shadow of two of Britain's biggest celebrities from the last decade.

Brooklyn Beckham, according to The Telegraph, has revealed that his forebearer's glistening reputation makes him reluctant to continue his football career.

Considering David Beckham's football status; winning trophies galore under Sir Alex Ferguson and establishing himself as an England legend - it's not hard to understand where he's coming from.

Becks' right foot is considered by many as one of the best treasures to come out of the British Isles since tea and The Beatles.

David Beckham quoted his son to ABC news, saying: "One of my boys turned around to me the other day, he said, 'Daddy, you know, I'm not sure I want to play football all the time.' It broke my heart a little bit."

"He also said, 'Every time I step on to the field, people are always saying, you know, this is David Beckham's son - and if I'm not as good as you, then it's not good enough"

"I said, 'Okay, stop right there... You play because you want to play"

The former Real Madrid winger was apparently heartbroken by his son's statements. Could Brooklyn be hanging up his football boots already?

He has recently been currently plying his trade with Arsenal's U17s - but it remains to be seen what the next step is for the teenager.

Personally, seeing the word 'Beckham' on the back of a jersey again would be a tremendous occasion and one that fans across the globe would love to witness.
