David Beckham is on the cover of another magazine, which means he’s saying things again, which means all of us are listening to and applauding every word. Because David Beckham could say ‘Me likey the soccer’ and we’d all be like, ‘Oh my god, he’s so deep and profound. Look how profound those abs are.’
Anyway, Beckham appears in the March issue of Men’s Health magazine, where he talks about everything from his family to his stubbornness.
“I’ve got friends at the different teams I’ve played for, but family is the most important thing to me,” Beckham told the magazine.
“That will always be the case. I’ve got my wife. I’ve got my four kids. I’ve got parents, grandparents still, and three really good friends. It’s all you need. I’d rather have three really good friends than 20 good friends.”
And speaking of kids, David says, “We’re very lucky with our boys: they want to win.”
“It would be easy for our kids to sit back and not work for anything, but they’re not like that. They’re as competitive as Victoria and me,” he continues. “That’s the way we’ve brought them up so far, and that’s the way we’ll continue to bring them up.”
David also calls himself out for one flaw: “I am a very stubborn person. I think it’s helped me over my career. I’m sure it has hindered me at times as well, but not too many times. I know that if I set my mind to something, even if people are saying I can’t do it, I will achieve it.”
