David Beckham Will Retire At End of Season

David Beckham’s illustrious footballing career looks as if it will finally wind down at the end of this season. The PSG midfielder was rumoured to be extending his stay in Paris but it looks as Beckham will finally call quits on a career that has literally taken him around the world.

“I’m thankful to PSG for giving me the opportunity to continue but I feel now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level,” he said. (via the BBC).

“If you had told me as a young boy I would have played for and won trophies with my boyhood club Manchester United, proudly captained and played for my country over 100 times and lined up for some of the biggest clubs in the world, I would have told you it was a fantasy,” Beckham continued.

“I’m fortunate to have realised those dreams.”

Beckham burst onto the scene at Manchester United in the 90′s and was part of the epic era that featured Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, and both Gary and Phil Neville. He won the Premier League six times at Manchester United as well as the Champions League in 1999. From there he joined Spanish and world giants Real Madrid where he also won La Liga before joining the Los Angeles Galaxy in a surprise move in in 2007. He went back to Europe on loan to Italian giants AC Milan twice during his time in the States before completing a permanent 5 month move to Paris St-Germain at the beginning of this year.

“Nothing will ever completely replace playing the game I love. However, I feel like I’m starting a new adventure and I’m genuinely excited about what lies ahead.

“I’m fortunate to have been given many opportunities throughout my career and now I feel it’s my time to give back.”
