Beckham’s role after retirement to remain global
Question of the Day
PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti started Beckham in the home leg _ against one of the best midfields of all time _ and Beckham was criticized by French media, with sports daily L’Equipe marking him 3 out of 10. It was a harsh criticism, as although Beckham hardly stood out, his neat and tidy passing from a deep-lying position was what Ancelotti wanted.
Beckham was booked in the second leg against Barcelona and then against Evian on April 28, he was red-carded shortly after coming on as he went into a tackle with a dangerously raised foot. There was no contact, but it was reckless.
Against Brest at Parc des Princes on Saturday, Beckham will have a chance to say farewell to PSG’s fans, who only knew him for a short time, before pulling on a jersey for the final time in Lorient on May 26.
Then it will be out of the shorts and into the suit as a new chapter in Beckham’s life begins.
“He is on a totally different planet to other players in terms commercial value and long-term ambassadorial role,” Martin said. “His appeal is so enduring and that won’t change (for another 20 years).”
