It’s been over a year since David Beckham retired from playing professional competitive football and the English midfielder stated that one of the main reasons on why his time on the pitch was over is because he wanted to start spending more time with his family.
During his playing time, at one point in time Beckham was the best paid footballer as the Englishman had an attractive set of skills that drew the attention of many top clubs around the world and they were willing to pay the English midfielder a hefty fee in order to secure his services.
Beckham is considered to be one of the best set-piece takers in the history of the sport and this was one of the reasons on why the former English midfielder was one of the players that every top club wanted to have in their teams.
David Beckham is no longer performing in any club but it has now been revealed that the former Manchester United star has earned more money in 2014 than ever before of his playing career.
Simon Fuller is the advisor of David Beckham and one of the reasons on why the earnings of the retired player skyrocketed in 2014 was due to 2 deals which were made involving his advisor.
Fuller and Beckham partnered with the beverage giants Diageo as they are planning on launching a new single grain Scotch whiskey, Haig Club and both of them will be working with the beverage company and developing the brand is one of things that they are planning to accomplish. Read more »

David Beckham’s dream on having his own soccer team in the MLS has been put under threat and his dream might not turn into a reality due to his project not having local support as well as a number of other reasons.
The mayor of Miami-Dade Carlos Gimenez supported the project of David Beckham and just when everything seemed like all of the process was going to kick-off with green light, it has stumbled and struggled with one of the biggest concerns being the implementation of his new stadium as the location still has not been selected.
2 different proposals have been launched from a group of investors which is led by David Beckham with the proposals revealing different locations of where the 20,000 seat stadium could be built. One of those locations is near the Miami Heat’s arena along Biscayne Boulevard while the proposal was for the stadium to be built at PortMiami.
The county mayor and the city mayor supported these proposals but they were denied by Miami officials and the stadium lost its support which has seriously complicated the plans of David Beckham.
The Major League Soccer commissioner Don Garber unveiled details concerning the project and development of David Beckham.
“If we can’t get the right stadium, we can’t go to Miami. We have been challenged to find a site that we believe will be successful. I’m neither optimistic nor pessimistic.It really is a very simple position we are in, if we can’t get the right stadium, we can’t go to Miami.We had two sites on the waterfront. Both were supported by the city mayor and the county mayor, and then we lost that support, so it is clear to me that it is a complicated market in a wide variety of ways,” Garber said.
