David Beckham always 'surprised' at how life has turned out

David Beckham has told ITV news he's surprised "everyday" at how his life has turned out after football.

The former England captain was speaking at the launch of the film, "The Class Of 92", which looks back at the Manchester United careers of Beckham and his peers Gary and Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs.

Beckham described his early playing days competing alongside the group as the happiest of his life.

The 38-year-old said he had been very lucky throughout his career, and while surprised at how his life has turned out, he said he was not at all surprised at what's happened to his former team mates.

Gary Neville for example is now a successful television pundit.

Beckham, who retired in May, went on to make almost 400 appearances for the club winning six Premier League titles, two FA Cups and the Champions League.

The 38-year-old revealed that when the "class of '92" all met up again for the film "nothing had changed".

Ryan Giggs was man of the match last night as United won 5-0 at Bayer Leverkuesen in the Champions League.

He admits he's a little taken back by the continuing playing career of Giggs, who'll be 40 years old on Friday.

"To still be playing at 40 years of age takes extreme sacrifice", he said.

The film will be shown at selected London cinemas on Sunday evening only before moving to DVD.
