David Beckham and the ten achievements which define him

After bidding Au Revoir to the game following Paris Saint-Germain’s coronation as Ligue 1 champions, world football will surely lose a mega star in David Beckham.

21 year old David Beckham after is winder goal against AFC WimbledonWhen it comes to football stars, there might be very few bigger than David Beckham. He may be no Zidane or Figo or Ronaldo, but world football will sorely miss the presence of a player who did so much for the game both on and off the field. 

Many people still wonder what is that makes Beckham so special even though he has not really managed to win as many individual accolades as legends of yesteryears did during their playing careers. However, his passion and his commitment to the game were second to none and it has been the diminutive moments which truly define him.

1. Making an impression 

The first time people saw that Beckham who would go on to become a true football phenomena was when he made his Champions League bow for Manchester United against Turkish giants, Galtasaray. The Red Devils thrashed the Turks 4-0. Although the score-line was not enough to secure progression, Becks got on the scoresheet and gave a fine account of his skills.

Is Manchester United star Wayne Rooney set to join David Beckham at PSG?

Sunday April 21 2013,
Tags: Wayne Rooney, David Beckham, Manchester United
Future of England international, Wayne Rooney at Manchester United has been subject of much debate recently and many people feel that the striker might leave Old Trafford at the end of the current campaign.
Confining a star and a game-changer especially when you are facing Real Madrid in a Champions League knockout game is always going to be a debatable decision and will result in a lot of speculation regarding that player’s future.

The same thing has happened with England international Wayne Rooney whose future has become something of an obsession in European media in recent weeks. It all started back in February when Sir Alex Ferguson chose to use his star player as an impact sub during the second leg of the Round of 16 game against Real Madrid. The game ended 2-1 with Real Madrid scoring two goals in quick succession after a controversial red card to Luis Nani and the Red Devils were knocked out of the competition.

Barcelona vs PSG Preview

Tuesday April 9 2013,
Tags: PSG, Ibrahimovic, Messi, Barcelona, Champions League, David Beckham
A late goal from PSG's Matuidi gave the French side some hope, as they will look to keep Barcelona from progressing to the semi-finals for a sixth successive year.

PSG may have had a controversial first goal against Barcelona in the first leg, but at this point, all that matters is the 2-2 draw the Parisians will take with them to the Nou Camp on Wednesday night. A draw will do them no good, so needing to score will put some pressure on their players, but going up against an injury plagued Barcelona will give Ancelotti's men a glimmer of hope. 

Unfortunately for Tito Vilanova, this big match will not have the presence of Javier Mascherano and Carles Puyol, who are both out due to injury. One other questionable player is Messi, who has been out with a thigh injury. His status for tomorrow's match is still unknown, although many believe he will be available.

Tuesday February 12 2013,
Tags: Roberto Soldado, Valencia, PSG, David Beckham, Ever Banega
UEFA Champions League returns tonight. Valencia will take on PSG in an intriguing battle. It will be very interesting to see who gets the better of the other.
Millions of eyes will get glued to their television screens tonight because it is the return of the Champions League. The competition enters its knockout phase and there is a lot at stake for the 16 remaining clubs in the competition. Valencia will lock horns with PSG at the Estadio de Mestalla, here is a look at how the two clubs may approach this game.

Tactics:

Valencia are most likely to play a 4-2-3-1 formation. Valencia have not been in a rich vein of form, they have managed to score 54 goals from 34 games this season. They are excessively dependent on a certain someone called Roberto Soldado to get them goals and there is every possibility in the world that PSG are well aware of this fact. Soldado has found the back of the net on 17 occasions this season, this is quite impressive for a striker. Ever Banega is expected to play just behind Soldado, the two players’ linkup really well.

Transfer deadline debate: What will David Beckham really offer to PSG?

Friday February 1 2013,
Tags: Transfer, David Beckham, PSG
In what could possibly be his last spell, David Beckham joined French side PSG after he passed his medical on the last day of the January 2013 transfer window.
For the Manchester United icon, this is an amazing opportunity to win a title in four different countries having already won silverware in England, Spain and the United States. His move to PSG also marks his return to European football.

From the French giants’ perspective, they now have a man who is well past his peak but could extensively benefit them for commercial purposes. This was also the case when Beckham joined Real Madrid back in 2003. The Galacticos remarkably recorded their highest revenues at the time.

One cannot deny that “Goldenballs”, in his prime, was among the top players in the world. That said, his role at PSG can be that of a mentor. PSG has a number of budding young players; one of them is Marco Verratti.

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney tells his manager Sir Alex Ferguson that he wants to leave the Manchester United clubRooney wants to leave Manchester United – The news breaks out

Refusing to take questions from journalists at the uniquely memorable press conference, Fergie only disclosed his personal opinion on Wayne Rooney’s decision to leave the club, and he gave away nothing but “facts” as he also delegated the judgment of the leading board on the matter.
