By Spear's

Author: Peter Matthews

Born to a hairdresser and kitchen-fitter, former football champion David Robert Joseph Beckham has an estimated net worth of £200 million.

A role model to scores of football enthusiasts, Beckham was born in 1975 into relatively humble beginnings.

When his teachers asked the question ‘What do you want to become?’ Beckham always had a ready-made answer — a football player. In fact, he was passionate about football, that he spent most of his leisure time during childhood playing it. Beckham’s professional entry into football marked with Manchester United in 1992, when he appeared in the team at seventeen.

Beckham’s style of corner kicking and scoring opened new chapter in football techniques.

Starting out at Manchester United and migrating to Real Madrid in 2003 and LA Galaxy in 2007, Beckham has played for several prestigious clubs throughout his lifetime although his favourite team to have played for during his career remains United.

Beckham entered international football in 1996, at the age of 21, and captained the England team for six years. He has played 58 international matches as captain and 115 international matches overall.

Through his freestyles and long range kicks, Beckham soon shot to fame in international football.
