David Beckham is finalizing plans to start a Major League Soccer franchise, and hoping son Brooklyn could one day take the field for the team,

While wary about putting pressure on his children to follow in his famous footsteps, the former England captain tells The Associated Press he hopes Brooklyn could be good enough to play on his team one day.

Five months after retiring from soccer, Beckham is putting the finishing touches to investment plans before asking the MLS to allow him to start up an expansion franchise in Miami.

Already, 14-year-old son Brooklyn has shown he could be the next Beckham to make it as a professional player.

And asked if he would like to see Brooklyn in his MLS team, Beckham tells The Associated Press: "Yes, hopefully, hopefully."
