Beckham Bows Out

One of the most recognizable names in soccer history officially called time on his career this month. David Beckham’s 22-year award-winning career, which included time playing for Manchester United, Real Madrid, the LA Galaxy and, most recently, Paris Saint-Germain, came to an end on May 18 with his wife Victoria and their four children Romeo, Brooklyn, Cruz and Harper, watching from the stands. “I just feel that it’s the right time [to retire]. I feel that I’ve achieved everything that I could in my career. I wanted to go out as a champion. I’ve finished my career in a team that has treated me like I’ve been here for 10 years,” said the 38 year old, who visibly wept on his last day of professional play. “After 22 years of playing football I’m going to take a few months to enjoy time with my family.” After the game, Beckham’s teammates tossed him in the air as he received a standing ovation from the crowd. It’s clear the soccer great will be missed.
