On May 2, 1975, former Manchester United, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy and PSG winger, David Beckham was born. David was born in London to Sandra Georgina and David Edward Alan “Ted” Beckham. Beckham was born to be a footballer as he was keen on what he wanted to do once he grows up. In a 2007 interview, Beckham said that, “At school whenever the teachers asked, ‘What do you want to do when you’re older?’ I’d say, ‘I want to be a footballer.’ And they’d say, ‘No, what do you really want to do, for a job?’ But that was the only thing I ever wanted to do.” Born in a family who supported Manchester United, David attended one of Bobby Charlton’s football schools in Manchester and won the chance to take part in a training session with Barcelona, as part of a talent competition. On 8 July 1991, David signed for Manchester United as a trainee and was part of a group of young players, including Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes, who were coached by Eric Harrison, and helped the club win the FA Youth Cup in May 1992.
The rest, as they say, is history.
