David Beckham lauded for his ‘class act’ during son Romeo’s match
Romeo Beckham, son of David, made his professional debut last week for Brentford B in the London Senior Cup.
The retired football player came to cheer on his son while keeping a low profile. A club record 554 fans showed up on a cold and wet evening in south east London, but keen eyes spotted him. This is according to BBC Sports.
Beckham also performed several acts of kindness that endeared him to the crowd.
It was a’subtle act of class’ on Beckham’s part, as reported by Express.co.uk, to not capitalise on his fame.
Director of Erith and Belvedere Paul Springett has confirmed that Beckham paid the full entrance fee, and even made a classy donation to the ladies serving tea, dispelling rumours that the celebrity would use his status to get in free.
While watching his son’s first professional game, Beckham gave £50 to the tea ladies.
David had not made a social media post mentioning going to the game, further demonstrating that his presence was not merely a PR stunt.
Brentford, meanwhile, overcame a 2-0 deficit to win 3-2 and move on to the knockout stage. Even though he didn’t score on his debut, Romeo “impressed” and “inspired” his new team to a victory.
Furthermore, the Manchester United legend was seen jumping over a fence as soon as the final whistle blew in an effort to escape a mob situation.
David stuffed his hood over his head and made his way home by pushing through the underbrush.
