David Beckham is not one for sitting down. The soccer star returned from a devastating injury to lead his American soccer team to the Major League Soccer playoffs. Soccer isn’t the only thing on the international footballer’s mind. Beckham has been doing a lot lately to keep himself moving forward.
Beckham’s Los Angeles Galaxy is in the Western Conference Finals of Major League Soccer after he assisted on two goals. The Los Angeles Times reports the English star helped his team to score on two set pieces as the Galaxy advanced 2-1 over the Seattle Sounders. Next is a match with FC Dallas to determine who goes to MLS Cup 2010 which is being played in Toronto. The Galaxy are motivated as they have said this is the year for a title.
Beckham’s contract to play with the Galaxy is up in 2011. The contract has a clause in which he can opt out of his final year if he so chooses. Beckham confirmed to Tribal Football he will finish out his time in Los Angeles because his kids love living there. After his contract is up a year from now he has yet to decide what he will do with his career.
As one of the most infamous underwear models for Armani, Beckham is no stranger to fashion. He announced to MTV Nov. 7 he’s currently designing his own line of men’s underwear. His wife Victoria already designs clothing for women so her husband pull his own weight with the family income when he’s finished playing soccer. Should Beckham’s clothing line do well, he plans to release his own men’s grooming products and moisturizers as well.
World Cup Bid
ESPNSoccerNet has learned Beckham will fly around the world, including a trip to Zurich Dec. 2, to make a final case for England hosting the 2018 World Cup. Latest reports have England in a distant third place behind the Netherlands and Russia to host the coveted World Cup in 2018. Prime Minister David Cameron and Prince William will accompany the soccer star to make one final push for an English nod at hosting one of the world’s premier sporting events.
Hello! Magazine discussed David and his wife, Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham’s marital success. The couple recently celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary and openly talked about how they keep their relationship a priority.
“We have a date night every Wednesday. We catch up on what we’ve missed on the TV. We watch ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ and we love Melanie B’s new reality show,” said Victoria.
Despite claims of David allegedly soliciting a prostitute in 2007, the couple is stronger than ever. Beckham filed an anti-defamation lawsuit against the tabloid which made the tawdry claim.
Beckham’s future after L.A. is a matter of speculation. Perhaps he will focus on his designer line of products or serve as a stay-at-home parent to his sons? Perhaps a career in coaching or hosting soccer camps is a part of his future. Whatever David Beckham decides, he will undoubtedly do it with style.
