Interview with David Beckham
Since March of this year David Beckham has been part of Dijon FCO a club founded in 1998. They are currently in their second spell in Ligue 1 after winning Ligue 2 back in May. Jeff Sterling recently sat down with Becks asking a wide range of questions. He is currently a coach for the U19 squad.
David why did you decided to join Dijon FCO?
Well after finishing up my football career in Paris I was ready for retirement. After a few months I was approached by Marc-Édouard (DFCO Manager) about an open position within the Dijon U19 squad. At first I was a little uneasy about taking this job but now that it has been several months I am enjoying it. Managing is more exciting than playing.
What did your wife say about the job?
At first she was really upset mostly because Dijon is not a big city like Paris or Los Angles and she enjoys being around people she knows. After awhile she started to like it especially on the privacy factor.
About that do you miss the major fanfare?
At times yes, but I am at a point in life where i need my privacy and being apart of Dijon really helps. Nobody really goes gaga over me and that is fine. I love all my fans though. Plus Marc-Édouard promised me that he wouldn't take advantage of my name just to get people to watch the club, like what happened in Paris.
Will you be owning that Miami Club in MLS?
Maybe someday but for now nope.
Finally, do you think you will be back in England to manage?
Once again maybe. I would love to manage PNE or Man United.
