David Beckham will end his six-year stint with the Los Angeles Galaxy in next month’s Major League Soccer championship game, saying he wants to experience “one last challenge” before the end of his playing career.
International soccer star David Beckham has seldom escaped the limelight. From his flashy Manchester United debut in 1992 to his July 1999 wedding to Victoria “Posh Spice” Adams (complete with his-and-hers golden thrones) and his star-studded “Welcome to L.A.” party in 2007 that was hosted by BFFs Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes and other Hollywood’s A-listers, the paparazzi has kept close watch on Beckham.
