Victoria Beckham doesn't want soccer star daughter

VICTORIA Beckham doesn't want her daughter to play soccer.

The 41-year-old fashion designer would prefer four-year-old Harper to enjoy pursuits she can also participate in, such as dance or tennis, after watching all three of her sons, Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 12, and Cruz, 10, share their father David Beckham's passion for the sport.

David said: "After having three boys that obviously do want to play football she wants to be able to have one of our children that wants to go and do stuff with her, like ballet or tap [dance]. At the moment Harper plays tennis.

"I think Victoria's had 16 years of sitting on cold Sunday mornings on the sidelines, watching the boys. She'd like to sit indoors and watch Harper either play tennis or ballet or tap. But if ever Harper does want to go and play football, Victoria will support her."

David recently travelled the world to play his sport across seven continents to promote the work of UNICEF in a new documentary, 'David Beckham: For the Love of the Game', and has vowed his "lucky" children will accompany him on one of his charity visits in the future.

Speaking to reporters to promote the film, he said: "Every time I go on a field trip I sit down with them after and discuss every single detail.

"My kids have been asking to come with me on these trips for years. At some point they will.

"Obviously their priority is their schooling but they are interested in these trips. My children already ­understand how lucky they are to have the life they have."
