Romeo Beckham supports Arsenal but not Manchester United; Here's why

Here's why Romeo Beckham supports Arsenal but not Manchester United? 

On Sunday, Manchester United legend David Beckham was trolled by his son Romeo, who supports Arsenal, following Red Devils’ 2-3 loss at the Emirate and the question remains why is the latter such a die-hard fan. 

Romeo took to his Instagram page and posted an image of his gloating father with the caption, "Sleep tight dad." 


David made over 350 appearances  for United during a trophy-laden spell at Old Trafford, winning six league titles, two FA Cups and the Champions League, amongst other silverware. He has been a life long Manchester United fan. Romeo recently joined Premier League outfit Brentford on a six-month loan deal.

In 2012, the dad revealed the reason behind his son being with Arsenal. 

"I tried to get Man United shirts on them early. Two of them are Man United fans and one of them’s an Arsenal fan. I don’t know how that happened, but my middle son, Romeo, is an Arsenal fan," he had told Shrtlist.

"Actually, I do know how it happened. I took him to an Arsenal game and Arsene Wenger treated him so well, gave him a shirt with his name on the back and his favourite number." 

"I had that when I was a kid with Man United. I let them support whoever they want. They don’t have to support the teams I played for." 

While speaking to Digital Spy, David has admitted that he was gutted when he found out Romeo supported Arsenal.

"When I found out that my son, Romeo, supports Arsenal, I became disappointed. I can’t bring myself to support Arsenal, although I do respect the club."
