Soccer will never be the same, David Beckham has announced his retirement! I know! This is devastating! The 38 year old soccer player who is best known for his time with Machester United, has been playing professionally for 20 years and decided that now is as good a time as ever to retire. Beckham will finish the current season with Paris-Saint Germain and will retire at the end of the season.

Beckham said in a statement, that I found on the New York Time website,“If you had told me as a young boy I would have played for and won trophies with my boyhood club Manchester United, proudly captained and played for my country over one hundred times and lined up for some of the biggest clubs in the world, I would have told you it was a fantasy, I’m fortunate to have realized those dreams.” So what’s next for the 38 year old?

Beckham has not only had a great career as a soccer player, becoming the first English player to win League titles in four different countries and holding the record for most appearances for an outfield player, he also has made himself very known to the ladies with his modeling career for various designers. With help from his wife, Victoria Beckham, the couple have been very well known for the fashion connections and are probably the most wanted spokespeople for fashion design. Needless to say, I don’t think this will be the last we see of the ever so sexy soccer player.
