Even More Becks In Men's Health

Here are some more extracts from David Beckham's interview in Men’s Health, out August. 12.

On being a great role model: "To be someone kids look up to is a great honor. What matters is how you carry yourself, off and on the field. People always say to me, ‘Why would you place yourself in a position where you have to put pressure on yourself?’ But it’s what gives me energy."

On continuing to popularize soccer in America: "I never do anything where I don’t believe in what I’m doing. I see that something could happen in U.S. soccer. That change isn’t going to happen in a year or two. It’s more of a 5-, 10-, or even 15-year plan. I believe in it, and I believe that in years to come, this could be one of the biggest sports here in America."

On his fashion style: "I know what I’m doing."

On crediting his father for helping him harness his focus: "Even if I had a great game he’s always say, ‘You played well, but these were the mistakes you made.’ If I had a bad game, I’d hear all about that. When I was playing for Manchester United, playing something like 200 games and winning European Cup finals, he still wouldn’t let me get away with saying, ‘I’ve made it.’ So that’s one thing I have never done and never will do."
