Beckham ‘gets rival soccer shirt for son’

The soccer ace’s 12-year-old son is an avid supporter of the sport and cites Manchester City as one of his favourite teams.

Despite David’s legendary status at City’s rival club Manchester United, the father-of-four agreed to speak to the team’s star Mario Balotelli in order to get a signed shirt for his eldest son.

'Brooklyn has an impressive collection of kits from some of the world's top players. He's a big fan of Balotelli and really wanted a signed shirt,' it has been reported.

'Despite City being United's rivals, Becks didn't mind as he's also a big admirer of Balotelli.'
