Victoria Beckham is a soccer expert

Los Angeles: Singer-fashion designer Victoria Beckham is reportedly an expert on soccer.

The 38-year-old, who is married to star player David Beckham, has a great deal of knowledge about the sport and is encouraging their oldest son Brooklyn, 13, to become a professional.

"We worked closely with Brooklyn during his time here. The young man has a lot of natural talent," quoted a source as saying.

"Victoria is a serious soccer mum. She used to call his coach twice a week for a detailed report on how Brooklyn was progressing. She could talk ages about tactics. She really knows her stuff and is very supportive of her children`s sporting achievement," the source added.
