Pele Says David Beckham Is More Pop Star Than Player

Reuters reports Brazilian soccer legend Pele views English soccer captain David Beckham as more of a pop star than an athlete due to his former Spice Girl wife Victoria Beckham. “The problem with Beckham is that he married the most famous Spice Girl and now he is more of a pop star than a soccer player,” Pele told reporters while visiting Mexico City to promote Viagra. “Football today is also entertainment and people want players to be stars rather than footballers.”

Posh Shares Becks Secret

The Sunday Mail quotes former Spice Girl talking about a quirk of her husband David. “If there’s an extra can of Diet Coke, David will put it in the cupboard so that it doesn’t look out of place,” she said. “There has to be an even number.”

    I love David Beckham, but it’s true that now he’s more of a “pop star” than a soccer star, because of “Posh Spice.” He’s concentrating too much on being famous. He’s extremely famous in every country in the world, except the United States, so now he and Victoria are doing this “self-promotion tour” thing, trying to gain fame here in the states. He should just concentrate on his new career with Real Madrid.

    the man has spoken and its all true. Becks has changed a lot since he met Posh and I think real man Utd fans know that …we saw it happen right in front of us this becks is way different than the becks we saw coming from our youth team… that’s why.. I can only say…its better he’s gone. :D good luck to him and his image I mean his career at Real , well same thing real just want him for his pop star status anyway.
