Goodbye Beckham

After Paul Scholes and Sir Alex Ferguson called it quits over the last week, it’s now the turn of yet another Manchester United legend to announce his retirement… David Beckham, or “Golden Balls,”as he famously known, will be making the big move away from the pitch at season’s end. The former England, Manchester United and Real Madrid stalwart played most recently for Paris Saint-Germain where he helped the French side obtain another league championship.

“Becks” also played for AC Milan and LA Galaxy in the U.S.A.’s MLS, winning league titles everywhere he went (except Italy). While he didn’t have the most versatile profiles as a player, the man had a blessed right foot that gave the world of soccer some real awesome moments that will surely be remembered for ages. See his Top 10 moments after the jump.In 20 years as a pro soccer player, Beckham won six Premier League championships, two FA Cups and a UEFA Champions League title in 1999 with Manchester United, a La Liga championship with Real Madrid, two league championships with the LA Galaxy, and now the League 1 championship with PSG. Beckham retires as the only English player to win league titles in four different countries; on the International front he’s the only English player to score in three World Cup tournaments and he holds the caps record for a field player for England with 115 appearances.
