Soccer all-star David Beckham recently announced his retirement from the sport that made him famous. “Now is the right time to finish. Nothing will ever completely replace playing the game I love. However, I feel like I’m starting a new adventure, and I’m genuinely excited about what lies ahead.” These “new adventures” may include an ownership stake in a Major League Soccer (MLS) club. Beckham’s involvement in this ownership was something he promised to fulfill in his contract. In Beckham’s final game on May 26th in Lorient, France, he will be playing for Paris-St. Germain, champion of France’s Ligue 1.

In his 20-year career, Beckham has won numerous domestic league titles in England with Manchester United, in Spain with Real Madrid, and in the U.S. with the Los Angeles Galaxy. With his time spent playing in France, Beckham is the only English player to have won titles in four countries.

“When we look back many years from now, the arrival of David Beckham is going to be looked at as a pivotal moment in the development and evolution of the game,” said ESPN soccer commentator Alexi Lalas. Although Beckham will be greatly missed by fans around the world, he has definitely left his mark on the game and inspired young athletes to reach their maximum potential.
