There was some belief that international soccer star David Beckham could be walking away from the game he’s been a part of for so long, but Beckham said after Paris Saint-Germain’s elimination from the Champions League that he wasn’t ready to leave the game just yet.
So, for now, Beckham is ready for at least one more year on the pitch.
“I enjoy playing and that’s why I still play and push myself into challenges. I want to continue. It’s harder than it was when I was 21 but I am still enjoying it like I was when I was 21. And when you get to my age, you’re more aware than when you were 21, you learn to read the game a lot differently. It becomes easier in that sense. Physically, it was always going to be difficult,” Beckham told reporters yesterday.
“Every time I play it only increases the urge to continue. That’s not going to change. When I finish, I will still be playing football with my kids and dreaming of playing in the Champions League. It’s year by year. I don’t have a plan right now.”
Beckham will be 38-years-old next season, but he’s poised to make another run with the best club in France.
If Beckham could cap off his soccer career with a Champions League win next season, it would be the perfect end to his impressive time in the sport.
