David Beckham buys MLS expansion team for $25 Million

It’s been over a year since David Beckham retired from playing football at a competitive and professional stage and since retiring, the Englishman has gone out to buy a MLS expansion team for $25 million which is expected to begin playing in 2016 or 2017 depending on how negotiations go on concerning if a stadium can be appropriately built in time and this seems to be the most problematic obstacle for Beckham for the moment.

The former captain of England has also gone out to explore the Amazon rainforest in Brazil for his BBC documentary which is called: ‘’Into the Unknown’’

The documentary was filmed in the run-up to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and in that video there are a series of interviews which were made to Beckham but there is a section in specific where the Englishman talks about how important it was to have a wife that understands him and helps him during his dark times.

David Beckham was eager on performing and representing England during the 2010 World Cup but he suffered an Achilles injury which kept him unable on achieving this dream and Beckham narrates told the media how it was not being able to represent his country in what could’ve been his last World Cup appearance.

It was a dark time for Beckham but the Englishman stated that having someone that can actually understand him was hugely important.

David said: “I felt my Achilles had gone as there was a huge hole in it. And the doctor came over to me and he gave me the phone. Victoria was on the phone and she said: ‘What’s just happened?’ And I said to her ‘It’s done’. And she said, ‘What do you mean it’s done?’
“And I remember, I’ll never forget, she just burst out unconditionally with emotion and crying like when someone just kind of can’t get their breath. She literally handed the phone to one of the boys and the boys were upset.”

David added on: “That was one of the points when I knew I had a wife that really understood me and really understood why I was doing it. She knew how much it meant to me, she knew how much playing in a fourth World Cup meant to me. That was a tough time for me.”
