Beckham in Brentford stands to watch Romeo Beckham’s debut

Former Manchester United superstar David Beckham was in the stands to watch his son Romeo Beckham make his debut for Brentford. The presence of Beckham drew a lot of attention to Brentford London Senior Cup match against Erith and Belvedere. Romeo had just made the switch from Inter Miami II and he will be playing with Brentford for the rest of the campaign. Brentford boss Thomas Frank has claimed that the 20-year-old decided to be on the pitch for his debut.

This is not the first time Thomas Frank has come under the limelight for coaching the son of a former star.

He has recalled how Michael Laudrup was in the stands to watch his son Andreas Laudrup make his debut under the watchful eyes of Frank. Brentford have signed the 20-year-old on a loan deal till the end of the campaign. So far, it has been a decent campaign for the club, who are ninth in the standings as they go up against Bournemouth this weekend.

The current injury situation at Brentford means that Romeo Beckham could get a lot more opportunities between now and end of the season. For the upcoming game against Bournemouth, though, Brentford could get Ivan Toney, who has been missing because of an injury, get back to action.

Romeo is a very good player, of course he has a name that is pretty worldwide, and big. For Romeo he is himself, but he of course has a big name. You can’t compare (father and son). He is here for a reason, because we think he is a good player, and we are pleased he could make the loan deal.(We are) pleased to see him doing well, pleased to see the performance he had in the last game and when you have players, either permanent or on loan, it is for a reason,” said Frank.
