Woke up this morning to have received an email from BBC breaking news relaying information that David Beckham will retire at the end of this season. He honored his commitment to Paris St. Germain, where early he announced would not take his salary but donate it to charity, and told him they would be the last team he will ever play for.
You either Liked David Beckham or you didn't-- no inbetween-- but there is no denying his athleticism. He achieved so many great things; for example, David Beckham made 265 Barclays Premier League appearances during his time at Manchester United Football Club scoring 62 goals in the process. In addition to that he was currently England's team captain and holds 6 Premier Leagues, 2 FA Cups, 2 MLS, 1 Liga, 1 Champions League, 1 Ligue 1, 4 Community Shield, and 1 Spice Girl. You just have to respect those figures. Oh and how about that one goal that took England to the World Cup final years after he had been sent off during the world cup game vs. Argentina ?
But there comes a time in ones life where you have to stop what you are doing in order to fulfill something else. David Beckham and his wife have a lovely family, and it is safe to say, he realized he wanted to put them first before anything else. What a class act kind of guy.
