Romeo Beckham, 19, signed his first professional football deal with Fort Lauderdale CF, which he proudly endorsed on social media.
“Footballers for @fortlauderdalecf”, it is now on Romeo’s Instagram profile. He also shared a photo of himself on the field with the caption “Follow Your Dreams”.
According to Miami Total Futbol, he could make his debut on the field on Saturday.
According to ESPN, Fort Lauderdale is CF League One of the United Soccer League. It’s also Inter Miami CF’s sister team owned by Romeo’s dad, David Beckham.
Speaking of dad, Romeo has big cleats to fill as he follows in the footsteps of his global superstars on the field.
Beckham, 46, signed his first professional contract with Manchester United in 1992 at the age of just 17. He then played pro for several teams including United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy for 21 years.
Beckham, who retired in 2013, has six Premier League titles, two Football Association Cups and one Champions League title in his luggage.
Victoria Beckham announced in an interview with Vogue in March that Romeo had started professional training.
“Romeo has been training with the team here every day because that’s what he ultimately wants to do,” said Victoria, 47.
She was also the first to congratulate Romeo on social media and wrote on his latest Instagram photo: “We are so proud of you Romeo x”.
