David Beckham Retired
David Beckham is retiring from football
after two decades at the top of the game.
“I’m thankful to PSG for giving me the opportunity
to continue but I feel now is the right time to finish
my career, playing at the highest level” he said.
Beckham was initially thought to be contemplating a
further year’s contract at Paris Saint-Germain, where he
has just won a league title in a fourth country following
spells at Manchester United, Real Madrid and
the LA Galaxy in MLS. On the international stage,
Beckham holds the England record for making 115
appearances as an outfield player for the national team.
He is expected now to return to London with his wife
Victoria and children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz
and Harper. His fortune is said to be worth around
£165m and there have previously been suggestions
that he would like to invest in an MLS club and
pursue his coaching schemes for schoolchildren.
