David Beckham

For any football fan, deadline day is always filled with a buzz! Whether you leave the news on all day whilst doing the chores, or if you’re repeatedly refreshing bbc news, even twitter with #deadlineday #transferdeadlineday and similar hashtags! Whatever news you’re waiting for, you’ll be told almost immediately!

So it’s no surprise that Yahoo!’s number one search this afternoon is David Beckham, and 5 out of 10 of twitter’s top trending searches are football related, and of course that includes PSG and David Beckham.

But why? David Beckham has reportedly (Yahoo!, BBC) signed a 5-month contract with Paris Saint-Germain Okay, so maybe that’s not 100% breaking news. But this is:

David Beckham has agreed with PSG that his potential salary for the following 5 months will all be donated to a children’s charity in Paris. What an amazing man!

Perhaps he is long past his football prime, but that doesn’t take away the fact that he is a fantastic role model, a wonderful person who deserves so much respect, which from most people he does receive.

To donate that much money to a children’s charity is simply inspiring and just another reason why he will always be my favourite footballer.
