He was one of the best football smugglers at the time. But David Beckham decided to permanently leave the playground in 2013, when he still had a lot to spare. This episode that some have hardly understood has just found an explanation. And according to the former Paris Saint Germain player, Lionel Messi has something to do with it.
At the microphone of The Sun, “Beck” explained how the idea came to him to hang up after the Argentinian prodigy allowed his team, FC Barcelona, to keep Paris Saint Germain in check at the Parc des Princes. A draw synonymous with elimination that the English star did not digest.
“I probably decided to retire when Messi walked past me. We were early. [Messi] arrived and Barcelona scored. Despite my age, I enjoyed playing and the team was good in both games. We did things to be proud, “said David Beckham to the tabloid. From the galactic epic with Zidane, Ronaldo, Luis Figo, Raùl and others to Real Madrid, the “Spice Boy” has devoted himself since his retirement to Inter Miami CF, of which he is the president.
