David Beckham

Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Today I am going to be talking about the biography of David Beckham.

Who is David Beckham? He is one of the most popular and most famous footballer of the world and he was born in Leytonstone, England on the 2nd May, 1975.

I will start with a list of data’s of his success in his football era and then move on to his career with Manchester in greater detail and at the last point I will talk about is his private life.

Starting with the list of data’s of his success in his football era. He played in more than 55 international football matches. He also won the premier league in 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000 and 2001, Cup champion 1996 and 1999. David Beckham also was UEFA-player of the year 1998/1999, young player of the year 1997 and FA Youth cup champion 1992. In the year 2003 he resigned from Manchester and switched to Real Madrid.

Now let me turn to the details of his football career. In 1991 when Beckham was 16 years old he joined the football club Manchester United. He played his first match at the coca-cola-cup. In the year 1993 he became a professional football player by Manchester United. Already with 16 the trainers have seen that David Beckham was an extraordinary football talent. He has played there until 1995. And then he switched to Preston North End. But he was there only a few months. He went back again to his old club, ManU. In 1996 he won his first premiership. In the next year the middle field player David Beckham played for the first time in an international football match for England and he won again the premier league. In 1998 he played in all qualifying matches at the football world championship.

In the first part of the world championship he shot his first goal in an international football match against Colombia. But in the eighth finals the referee disqualified David Beckham because of an unfair attack to another player. In the season 1997/1998 he was the most important middle field player with eleven goals and 22 assists.

In the year 1999 he won the champions league with ManU and then at the vote to the World footballer of the year he won the second place behind Rivaldo. The following year Manchester United won again with David Beckham the British football league championship. He also shot his second goal in an international football match against Finland. Against Greece he equalized the score at two all in the extra time and therefore they took part in the world championship.

The football champion again shot a goal at the world championship 2002 against Argentina. The British national team dropped out because of a bad penalty kick. The
fans blamed David Beckham for the defeat. At the UEFA champions league Mr. Beckham’s metatarsal (Mittelfußknochen) broke. In June 2003 Manchester United confirmed the “sale” of David Beckham to Real Madrid for a record sum of € 35 mio.

Let’s move on to his private life. In March 1999 his first son was born. They baptized (taufen) him Brooklyn. In November Victoria Adam and David Beckham got married. The second son Romeo was born on the 1st of September, 2001.

Now I digress for a moment from David Beckham to Victoria Beckham. She is a British singer, originally in the girl band the Spice Girls, where she was known as Posh Spice. At the moment Victoria Beckham is pregnant.

In 2004 her happy image suffered when a lot of women claimed, that they had affairs with David. Victoria is fed up with all the rumours about this and her marriage. Therefore both Victoria and David decided to produce a reality soap like the Osbournes. Victoria said that with this reality soap they could show what they really feel for each other. They decide themselves what they will show in this soap.

Now I go back to my earlier point, David Beckham, it is also the last point of my presentation: David Beckham goes to Hollywood! He got some offers from Hollywood. First of all he shall get a minor part in a film called “Goal!”: A teenager lives in the street of Los Angeles and after years he will become a great footballer in Great Britain.

Now Beckham starts a new chapter in his career. Despite his new haircuts and his star status, he will not stop playing football.

Now I am at the end of my presentation about David Beckham.
