Man Utd legend Beckham: Wenger convinced Romeo to become Arsenal fan!

Manchester United and Real Madrid legend David Beckham admits son Romeo is a big Arsenal fan - thanks to Arsene Wenger.

But his other boys, Brooklyn, 12, and six-year-old Cruz have stayed loyal to their dad's old side.

Becks said: "I tried to get Manchester 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 it happened.

"Actually, I do know how it happened.

"I took Romeo 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."

Becks, who plays for LA Galaxy, told Shortlist magazine: "I let them support whoever they want."

One-year-old daughter Harper has yet to decide.
