Former Real Madrid superstar Luis Figo recently surprised everyone by putting forward his name as a candidate for the FIFA presidential elections.
A few weeks ago David Beckham was in the spotlight of the media after enduring a motorcycle accident which left the former star of Manchester United with no significantly real injuries but the Englishman has once again sustained another vehicle accident as he crashed his Audi RS6 Avant when Beckham had already gone to pick up his eldest son Brooklyn who was training with the youth academy team of Arsenal.
Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has revealed in his autobiography that former manager Sir Alex Ferguson did not want David Beckham to wear the iconic number seven shirt at the club.
Beckham is regarded as one of the finest midfielders to have won the iconic shirt, which has been won by many names like Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo. The England international, though, developed a reputation for being too flamboyant and not being focused on football. This ultimately led to his fallout with Ferguson.
Former England captain David Beckham, who holds the record for the most number of appearances by any outfield player for the national team, says that he is extremely impressed with the facilities at St George’s Park. The England FA spent a huge amount of money in order to build this state of the art facility to help players train and rest better. The facility has been done after the England FA drew inspiration from the likes of France and Germany, who have similar facilities built in the last decade.
Former England international David Beckham is regarded as one of the finest players to have represented the national team in the last few decades. The former Manchester United star holds the record for the most number of appearances made by an outfield player.

The 38-year-old, who has retired from all forms of football, made 115 appearances for the England national team in a career spanning 13 years.

Former England captain David Beckham has urged Liverpool and England skipper Steven Gerrard to stay on as the national team leader despite the country’s failure to reach the second round in the recently concluded World Cup in Brazil.
The Liverpool legend will be pushing 36 by the time Euro 2016 hits France but is just two appearances away from breaking the all time outfield record for England currently held by Beckham with 115 appearances for the Three Lions.
