According to reports from British newspaper ‘the Daily Star,’ former England and Manchester United football star David Beckham has hired a bodyguard to protect his son while he plays. Young Brooklyn Beckham recently signed a short-term contract with English Premier League club Arsenal and has been assigned to the outfit’s youth academy. The 15-year-old is currently playing for the club’s Under-16 squad and his famous last name is attracting crowds. Beckham Sr. doesn’t want to take any chances though and has hired an ex-soldier to sit on the players’ bench during games.

Sources told the newspaper that the bodyguard, who used to be a special-forces soldier, is dressed like a member of the team’s coaching staff so he doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. It’s believed that Arsenal was more than happy to oblige with the request as the club wants to make sure all of its players are safe at all times. In addition, Arsenal has reportedly increased security patrols at their youth academy headquarters and at their London Colney training base.

It’s now becoming more difficult for curious onlookers to catch a glimpse of the younger Beckham.

The only visitors allowed to check out the Under-16 team in action are parents and relatives of the players and those who have been invited by the team. The games are basically played behind closed doors these days, but in the past anybody could just walk up and watch them. The report added that Brooklyn’s dad David attends most contests to see if his son is living up to the family name. Beckham’s other two sons, nine-year-old Cruz and 12-year-old Romeo may also follow in their dad’s footsteps in the future.

David and Brooklyn were also in the news recently when Beckham Sr. crashed his Audi after picking his son up from an Arsenal training session. Both of them managed to walk away from the accident unhurt.
