I woke up this morning with the news that my main man, my number one footballer, is retiring. David Beckham, sans good looks and incredibly sexy body, is one of the BEST football players OF ALL TIME. As sad as I’m with the news, I firmly believe that what he said is true: “It’s time.”
A young dreamer turned into a LEGEND.
Soccer is a magical game.
– David Beckham
My ULTIMATE favorite Beckham GOAL. The one that opened my life to football. ❤
Beckham’s last-minute free-kick against Greece that booked Man U a spot at World Cup.
October 6, 2001
His other golden goals. Stuff that made him a legend.
Cheers! Beckham’s Trophy Collection:

People look back and it’s written, it’s simple – you’re leaving as a champion and that’s why I think it’s the right time.
‘I just want people to see me as a hard working footballer. Someone that’s passionate about the game and someone that every time I stepped on the pitch, I’ve given everything that I have because that’s how I feel.
‘Going into games at the end of my career that’s how I look back on it and hope people see me. I think over the years it’s been my life and my career.
David Beckham will bow out from professional football at the end of the season. His final two games for Paris Saint Germain will be at home to Brest on Saturday at 9pm and then his last ever game will be Lorient on Sunday May 26.
