Moyes refuses to discuss Beckham joining Manchester United’s academy

by Sam Peoples

David Moyes has refused to make any comment surrounding the possibility of Brooklyn Beckham joining Manchester United’s academy.

The 14-year-old took part in training with one of our youth teams this week and has also trained with Chelsea as well as Queens Park Rangers’ academies in England as he looks to gain trials around the country.

David Beckham visited Carrington with Brooklyn this week and watched from the sidelines as he was put through his paces by United’s staff but when questioned by reporters at today’s press conference, Moyes was straight forward in his response.

“I don’t talk about young players and you have never asked me about any other youngster before,” he said.

Incidentally, Beckham senior signed schoolboy forms with United himself back when he was 14 and joined up the academy in 1991. Only a year later, he was a central figure in United’s famous class of 1992 alongside Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Gary and Phil Neville.

Despite the success of David, there is no guarantee that Brooklyn will follow in his fathers footsteps.

Brooklyn has already scored a goal at Old Trafford but it may end being the only one.
