Photos of David Beckham in September 2008 Men's Health

David Beckham Gives Us the Old One-Two Punch

David Beckham is looking seriously sexy on the September cover of Men's Health, keeping his shirt on (boo) and dressing up in a suit for his boxing-themed photo shoot. In the interview, he talks about his family, sports, and how someone was very wrong about his soccer skills. Here are some highlights:

  • On his comfort zone: "There is this madness around me, around my family. Without a doubt, out on the field is where I'm most comfortable, where I'm happiest, because I know what I'm doing, and I know I can do it."
  • On losing: "I'm a really bad loser. It stays with me for a while. I always take it quite personally when we don't win as a team or I don't win in everything else I do."
  • On relaxing: "People always ask me, 'Do you play golf?' Because a majority of sportsmen do. I used to play, quite a few years ago, but to be honest, I'd rather spend four hours with the kids than four hours on a golf course. As much as it can be relaxing, it's a frustrating sport. My way of relaxing is listening to music and spending time with the kids."
  • What another player said to him when he was 13 years old: "You'll never play for England, because you're too small and not strong enough."

Looks like Becks really knows how to motivate himself by proving people wrong — and now he's racking up awards to show everyone that he's still on top.

free kick and crossing the ball ARE one of the actual football skills! not just running and dribbling and shooting. obviously you don't know about the sport enough if you really thought that. being GREAT at free kicks and crossing and passing means he IS a great football player..because that means he is a great TEAM PLAYER! and for your info, football is a TEAM game, not individual game. why do you think that the other strikers in his teams, be it Man United, or Real Madrid, or England, or even LA Galaxy now, can score a lot of goals and scoring great goals?? because they have a player like Beckham to ASSIST them! and now you are saying that those scorers/strikers are great/greatest players and David is not?? what an IGNORANCE! and for your info, while he maybe not in the same group of ALL of the greatest England players EVER, DB is INDEED one of the greatest players (if not the greatest, but i believe he is) in the LAST 10 OR 11 YEARS in England. i repeat, THE LAST 10 OR 11 YEARS, not the whole history of English football. there's a lot different there. cheers!

hes not one of Englands greatest EVER players at all. He was a great free kick specialist/crosser of the ball. he could never run very fast, pass players on the pitch or show much actual skill. but in the pantheon of all time he aint

I just am not a fan of him nor his wife. Talk about publicity hounds.
