  • Even though he is a very rich man indeed these days, he appears more of a human being than many of his fellow superstars, and I think this is probably why he has retained quite a lot of his support from fans around the world

      David Beckham is an English soccer player - but that sentence hardly does justice to the massive levels of support, hype and criticism that this player has received over the course of his playing career, whether it be in England, Italy or the U.S. Add to that his marriage to “Posh Spice” Victoria, and his high-profile modelling contracts, and you have a man who transcends his sport and is a true global superstar.

      Nevertheless, his days at the top may now be starting


      to come to an end. He does not have the speed and reactions he used to in his time at Manchester United, and while his dead-ball skills are still superb and his free kicks feared by all opponents, you could no longer call him irreplaceable. Indeed, the England team has ceased to regard Beckham as a pivotal player, and more often than not he is now used only as a substitute.

      Even though his powers are fading, he is still good enough to ...


      • have hopes of playing for England in the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa, which explains his desire to leave the LA Galaxy and return to Europe in order to play for Milan. This is not popular with American soccer fans, and understandably so, but I have to be honest and say that the standard in the U.S., while better than it was a few years ago, is still not at the elite level a player like Beckham requires.

        A point in

        Beckham’s favour is his relatively down to earth attitude. Even though he is a very rich man indeed these days, he appears more of a human being than many of his fellow superstars, and I think this is probably why he has retained quite a lot of his support from fans around the world. I would like to see him play at a World Cup one last time next year - but will his body be strong enough for such an occasion?
