“Everyone knows I retired three years ago and I never thought I’d actually be getting my boots out again and play” he revealed to Nick Grimshaw on BBC’s Radio-1 Morning Show. “I’m ambassador of UNICEF so we’ve come together…and decided to raise funds by doing a game,” he said. The tattooed hearthrob revealed he’ll be playing in a charity game on Nov. 14 at Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester, England, to which he’s “excited about.”
David admits his skills are a bit rusty. After all, he’s spent his retirement modeling and spending time with his beautiful family including wife Victoria Beckham, 41, and their four children, sons Brooklyn, 16, Romeo, 13, Cruz, 10, and daughter Harper, 4. He’s especially enjoyed his time away from playing professionally to bond with his precious daddy’s girl.
He added “The game is six weeks away and I need to start getting out there and doing something and actually kicking a ball again. Because the only time I’ve actually kicked a ball throughout this time is with the kids and the only game that I’ve actually played since I retired was one against the dads and teachers at school.” We’re sure you’re going be amazing on the field David!
