David is a man with many talents and a lot of people will now be offering him different jobs, different roles, some of which could take him away from football, but I’m rather hoping we will be able to keep him in football.
We could benefit from his experience, we could benefit from his charisma, and benefit from the magnificent past he has had as a football player.
I didn’t know him too well before taking the job, but since I have been appointed he has been unbelievably supportive, if only with things like text messages wishing us luck.
In David Beckham England has a big fan, a great supporter.
