9780007157334: David Beckham: My Side

David Beckham's popularity transcends sport and cultural divides. This is his personal story of his career to date, for Manchester United, Real Madrid and England, and of his childhood, family and private life. With new chapters featuring David's first account of his debut season for Real and England's fortunes in Euro 2004. This is Beckham's fascinating life story in his own words. His complex relationship with United boss Alex Ferguson and how it was like playing alongside the likes of Cantona, Schmeichel and Keane. The England story, from being vilified by the nation before returning as the prodigal son and captain of his country. And his acrimonious falling-out with his manager and departure from Old Trafford in June 2003. Now from Beckham himself, we gain a vivid and eye-opening insight into the family man behind the famous footballer, the international model and fashion leader. He describes how he first met and then married ex-Spice girl Victoria Adams, and the upbringing of their two children Brooklyn and Romeo. How his family's every step is monitored by a posse of newshounds and paparazzi. Also, the influence of his parents, growing up as a shy youngster in the family home

About the Author:

David Beckham was born in Leytonstone, East London in May 1975. At the age of 11 he came first in the Bobby Charlton Soccer Schools competition ahead of 5,000 other boys. He signed for Manchester United in 1989 and made his debut three years later, aged 17. He has since gone on to play more than fifty times for England, including captaining his country in the World Cup and European Championship finals. He signed for Real Madrid in a much-publicised transfer in the summer of 2003. Tom Watt is an established author, sportswriter and broadcaster. He has written three books on football - The End, A Passion for the Game and The Greatest Stage.

Review:
