Brooklyn Beckham To Leave Arsenal Academy


Brooklyn Beckham may not be following in his famous father's footsteps after all.

David and Victoria Beckham's 15-year-old son has been told by Arsenal that he doesn't quite make the grade for their football club.

The teenage is enrolled at the Premier League club's Hale End academy and was hoping to be handed a two-year term to continue with the Gunners.

But according to the Mail, Brooklyn won't be retained next season.

It's a bitter disappointment for the son of the former Manchester United, Real Madrid and England star because just a couple of weeks ago he was called up to play for the club's Under 18 side.

However, according to the paper, he got the call because most of the players who would normally be selected had travelled to the Al Kass youth tournament in Qatar.

Brooklyn will stay at the club until the end of the season and Arsenal youth coaches are said to still rate him highly and believe he can still make the professional grade at another club.

However, they feel other players in his right midfield position are more advanced in their development at the club.

After this setback, it's not known whether Brooklyn will continue with his ambitions to follow dad David into football.

The teenager has also tried his hand at modelling and has worked as a barrista in a coffee shop.
