Coaching Career-

Due to an injury suffered to his torn left Achilles tendon, Beckham was forced to miss the 2010 FIFA World Cup as a player. On 14 May 2010 it was announced that Beckham will work as a mediator between management and the players and as an English member of the coaching staff for the England national football team at the tournament. As an agreement between Beckham, his representatives, Fabio Capello and his club, Los Angeles Galaxy, that the former England captain will be on the plane to South Africa on June 2. But Beckham refuses to call time on his international career and it is believed that his presence will boost England, whose opening World Cup game was against the USA on June 12. 


Former manager Alex Ferguson said that he "practised with a discipline to achieve an accuracy that other players wouldn't care about. He maintained his training routine at Real Madrid and even when his relationship with management was strained in early 2007, Real Madrid president Ramón Calderón and manager Fabio Capello praised Beckham for maintaining his professionalism and commitment to the club. Beckham was the first England player ever to collect two red cards and the first England captain to be sent off. Beckham's most notorious red card was during the 1998 FIFA World Cup after Argentina's Diego Simeone had fouled him, Beckham lashed out with his leg and the Argentine fell. He amassed 41 yellow cards and four red cards for Real Madrid.
