Beckham: I never wanted to be famous

Los Angeles - David Beckham never set out to be famous.

The handsome athlete - who is married to former Spice Girls singer Victoria Beckham - says he was only interested in playing soccer when he was younger and not becoming the A-list star he is today.

He said: "I never wanted to be famous. I was never interested in anything else apart from becoming a footballer."

Despite being 36, David says he has no intention of retiring from the game just yet as he still believes he is good enough to play.

Retiring

He told Men's Health magazine: "I know what my limits are, what I can achieve and which passes I can play. So that's been my game over the last few years: I have adapted to my age, different situations and the position that I'm playing in.

"I still love playing; I still love being part of a team. Right now I'm not even thinking about retiring."

The father-of-four recently signed a new two-year contract with the LA Galaxy and says he can't wait until the new season starts in April.

He revealed: "We love it here. People still question why I made the decision to come to America but the answer is always the same; I want to achieve.

"I've won everything I ever wanted to win in Europe and had many great, successful years there."
