Former England international David Beckham recently announced his retirement from the sport after several years at the top level. He has been one of the celebrated players in the history of football. He represented the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, and PSG during his career. He became the first English player to lift league titles in four different countries. He has also started a wave of excitement in the United States for football. After several years at the top level, Beckham ended his career playing for PSG.
There have been several rumours about what David Beckham is about to do next. Many have been suggesting that he is about to enter into football ownership when he takes stake in the MLS franchise that is about to be started in the next few years. MLS has announced that the league will be getting new teams – up to four – in the next few years. Beckham, though, has commented that it has been a difficult time to be out of football, while the decision was also equally tough as well.
During his stellar career, he managed to win all major trophies. He is also one of the richest sportsmen in the world. He has been rumoured to be on the verge of investing in a franchise located in Florida.
“The toughest decision I had to make was retiring when I have been involved in the sport I love for so many years, playing professional football for 22 years at the highest level. Making that decision, for me, was the toughest. I still question myself, of course, but I am 38 years old… I have had a pretty successful career. I feel it is the right time,” said Beckham. The 38-year-old star represented PSG for six months before retiring at the end of last season.
