Romeo Beckham is looking forward to spending the rest of the 2022/23 campaign in west London having joined Brentford B on a loan deal from MLS side Inter Miami CF.
The 20-year-old midfielder has spent the past couple of months training with the young Bees to maintain fitness during the close season in the USA.
Having had the chance to work with Neil MacFarlane’s side, Beckham is relishing the opportunity to continue his development with the Bees.
“I’m very proud and very happy to be here," he said.
“I came here at the start to keep fit during the off season. The chance then came to come on loan here and I’ve never been so excited.
“It was a fun season [in the USA] and there were a lot of ups and downs but I’m excited to come here and see what I can do.”
In recent months Beckham has been able to build a strong bond with the B-team players as they continue their hard work on the pitch in what has been a positive first half of the campaign.
The youngster is also keen to continue learning under Brentford B head coach MacFarlane and assistant coach Sam Saunders.
Discussing the group and becoming part of the B-team squad, Romeo feels that the talent in the team can only help his development.
He continued: "I’ve loved it. They’re such nice boys and have good energy. I love coming in every day seeing them and getting to train every day with them is fun.
“They are all very talented players, and they drive me to be even better in myself. A few of them give me some kicks and I give them back, but we all come into work hard to get better in ourselves and the coaches drive that.
“They’ve [MacFarlane and Saunders] helped me massively over the last couple of months and I’m excited to see what else they can help me with to really progress in football.
"If you look at Brentford as a club, it’s very positive and it’s a club that is on the rise very quickly. I’m very grateful to be here.”
Becoming part of the B-team group will see Beckham test himself in a challenging fixture programme as the side set their sights on the knockout stages of the Premier League Cup, as well as more tough tests overseas in the coming months.
The right-sided midfielder is looking forward to challenging himself in the near future.
He concluded: “I love how we have the opportunity to play at different levels, both abroad and here.
"We go across to play some men’s teams and it’s a good experience. [I want] to get the experience to play against men and get physically stronger and we’ll see how that can progress me.”
