However, speaking on The Graham Norton Show, Beckham who is married to Spice Girl's star Victoria, revealed that his daughter, Harper, was following in her daddy's footsteps. 

He said: "Harper is playing every Sunday and loves it. The boys don't play and it's heartbreaking. They have a talent, but it's down to Harper now.

"I get very enthusiastic when watching her.

"The other day a boy took her down and I had to think how to react with all the other parents watching me.

"Do I act like a Unicef ambassador or do I act like Harper's daddy? In the end, I let it go!"

The fourth child and only daughter of the Beckhams, Harper's middle name is Seven, the number worn by David when he played for Manchester United.
