Tuesday night, David Beckham, a former Manchester United midfielder, made an odd exit after seeing his son Romeo make his debut for Brentford’s second team (team B).
Beckham withstood the torrential downpour to watch Romeo enter the game as a second-half substitute while donning an expensive-looking navy waterproof jacket.
The ex-captain of England appeared uninterested in interacting with the throng of supporters who surrounded him after the game and kept hounding him for handshakes and selfies.
After leaping out of the stand and jumping over a fence to escape Park View Road, the 47-year-old channeled his inner Bear Grylls.
However, Beckham’s unexpected withdrawal, which was witnessed by many of the supporters there, was far from discreet.
The hooded Becks made his getaway after the former Paris Saint-Germain player descended from the stands and clambered over a wooden barrier and over some thorny bushes.
Recall that Romeo just agreed to a loan agreement from Inter Miami II with the Londoners.
The 20-year-old made his professional football debut against non-league Erith & Belvedere, a team that competes in the ninth division of English football, for the reserve Bees.
Romeo didn’t score, but he was a significant contributor to his team’s thrilling 3-2 victory over Erith.
