I must admit that my admiration for David Beckham goes back a long time, ever since he scored that spectacular goal for Man United from the halfway line against Wimbledon in 1996. Told you it was a long time.
Since then David met Spice Girl Victoria, became one half of Brand Beckham and have enjoyed a great life both as a footballer and a man. Boys grow up wanting to ‘kick the ball like Beckham’ while women want to date him. And I don’t blame them. Like good wine, Beckham has only improve with age, and at 37 his charming smile and good looks are definitely better than back in ’96.
So with the Beckhams back on British ground, four kids in tow, and David having signed a 5 month deal to join Paris Saint-Germain, I thought it fitting to look at 5 reasons to love David Beckham. Here they are…
1. He donates to charity
Becks is donating his PSG wages to charity. OK as a multi-millionaire he can afford it, and it is probably all part of the PR campaign (or the fact that anyone in France earning over one million Euros a year will have to pay 75% tax). But it makes us feel all warm and fuzzy.
