David Beckham reveals what he would have done if he were not a footballer?
Arguably, one of the most popular footballers of the modern era, David Beckham has revealed what he would have done for a job if he was not blessed with his footballing skills.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid footballer, who holds the record for the second-most number of caps for England after Peter Shilton, was apparently destined for a modest profession if it wasn’t for that wand of a right foot, predicting he would have followed in his father’s footsteps to become a gas fitter.
Beckham, who has credited much of his career success to father Ted, was speaking to live streaming app MyEye at the HMV Football Extravaganza last night to receive the Legend of Football Award.
He added: “I am proud of what I have achieved and my hard work is down to my parents, who are here tonight with my sister.”
The England great also revealed his first day at Real Madrid was one of the most nerve-wracking moments of his life, following his switch from Old Trafford to the Bernabeu.
Meanwhile, Beckham admitted to paying £10,000 for an Arsenal shirt signed by himself for son Romeo’s birthday present, as his second-oldest son turned 13 yesterday.
However, his football career worked brilliantly for him and he won a number of major trophies for almost every team he played for and now enjoying his time after retirement from football.
He won Premier League six times, FA Cup two times, Champions League once. He also won 1 La Liga for Real Madrid. He retired from professional football with a Ligue 1 title with Paris Saint-Germain.
