UK: Beckham decides to retire after the season

17th May 2013

LONDON, (Xinhua): England former captain David Beckham decided to end his pro career at the end of the season, the home- known footballer announced on Thursday.

As one of the world most successful and well-known athletes, Beckham said in a statement, “I’m thankful to PSG for giving me the opportunity to continue but I feel now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level.”

“It’s the right time, I believe it’s the right time but I’ll always feel I can do more, that’s the problem,” the midfielder said.

Beckham, 38, is serving his last season with Paris St Germain to the last trophy in his career – the French league title, besides his plenty of trophies in England, Spain and the United States.

He won the Champions League, six Premier League titles and two FA Cups with the Manchester United, before he joined the Real Madrid in Spain, LA Galaxy in the U.S. and PSG in France.

“To this day, one of my proudest achievements is captaining my country,” Beckham said in his statement. “I knew every time I wore the Three Lions shirt, I was not only following in a long line of great players, I was also representing every fan that cared passionately about their country. I’m honoured to represent England both on and off the pitch.”
