DAVID BECKHAM has revealed he was forced to switch between wearing the kit of Manchester United and a Premier League rival.
Beckham, 47, explained that due to the differing football allegiances in his family he needed to change what kit he wore in the morning and afternoon.
Speaking on United shirt.
“I always used to get a Man Utd shirt from my mum and dad… and then I used to get a Tottenham shirt from my grandad.
“But the United shirt was the one that I wore in the morning and then I had to wear the Tottenham kit in the afternoon.”
Before moving up north to join The Red Devils all the way back in 1991, Beckham was a part of the Tottenham youth set up.
Despite not playing for the North London side in his senior career, the former England captain said he would love to play for Tottenham in 2019.
Then boss Mauricio Pochettino revealed: “I was talking to David Beckham just now and he said âI wish I could still play football and play now for Tottenham because this stadium is amazingâ.
“He said âI wish I could play here and play for you!â”
Of course, Beckham has his sights on different goals these days.
Beckham also revealed he cried when he was told he was going to inherit the No7 shirt.
He said: “Phone rings, ‘David it’s the boss. We’re signing Teddy Sheringham and he’s going to have the number ten shirt – see you pre-season.’ And that was it, that was it.”
“I go into pre-season, the boss pulls me into the office, he said ‘how are you feeling David?’
“And I said ‘well boss I really loved the number ten’. He said ‘yeah but you’re going to get the number seven.’
“And I was like… I think I cried. My dad was the first one that I phoned when I got the number seven shirt. My dad was a Bobby Charlton fan – that’s why my middle name is Robert… because (of) Bobby Charlton.”
