David Beckham feels his children know how lucky they are to have the kind of life they have. The Former Manchester United, Real Madrid, Ac Milan and PSG player is a UNICEF ambassador and recently undertook a task of playing in all 7 continents of the world while returning to Old Trafford in October to stage a charity match for UNICEF.
The former England football captain said his children are aware of the good work he has done over the years for charities such as Unicef, and that he sits down with them following a trip and discusses every detail with them. He said:
“My kids have been asking to come on these trips with me for years so at some point they will, obviously the priority is their schooling, but they are interested in these trips. My children always understand how important and how lucky they are to have the life they have.”
He said the focus of the BBC One documentary he was shooting titled ‘For The Love Of The Game’ was to showcase the good work done by Unicef and to highlight the “power of the game and what the game means to so many people around the world” and not just to show off his wife Victoria Beckham or his family.
“If we had wanted Victoria to be a part of this she was more than happy to be part of it,” he said. “But I think this was something separate that we wanted to… use this documentary to highlight the game and what it’s meant to me and what it’s meant to so many people. Like I said, Victoria would have done something in it, but I don’t think we needed her to. We don’t sit down and discuss about keeping things separate but I think we both have our own things that we focus on. We both have things we do individually and together. I wouldn’t walk into her studio and try and tell her how to make a dress … it might be interesting if I did but we definitely have our own individual things.”
