David Bekham is out of England Football team and now he is not also trying hard to get back in the team.... He went to US on 1 millon per week contract... I guess this move is totally money driven . What do u think????

i dont have clue if its money driven or not , i think its his choice at the end of the day where he wants to play and in which country or club, if a club is offering that much money to him than there is nothing wrong .Just imagine the treatment he recevied in real madrid ,Man utd and England where he was dropped to the bench for no reason.I think he choose the club which will play him more ,repect him as a player and Gives more money

i am sure he is not after money..he has been ignored by capello this whole season..moreover he did not have a good time with real madrid from the moment he joined it.. and now capello has announced that he will be letting bekham play till his contracts ends in june..u cant expect a person of beckham's class to sit out from active football for about a season.. he has to perfrom well to get included into the national squad too.. so he went to america to brighten his future

DAVID BECKHAM ITSELF IS A MAN AFTER WHICH MONEY RUNS,, EITHER IS PLAYING FOR REAL MADRID,ENGLAND OR OTHERS,, BUT NOW WE CAN SEE HIS CPABILITIES ARE MEASURED IN TERMS OF MONEY. WHICH ACCORDING TO ME IS NOT FINE, I WOULD SUGGEST THE MANAGEMENT OF ENGLAND TO BE FAIR ENOUGH WITH THE IDOL OF FOOTBALL OF 21ST CENTURY,,, WHOSE NAMES ARE BOARD FOR MAKING MOVIES SUCH AS " BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM"

It does seem that no other club would pay him that amount of money, but if someone is silly enough to offer him that amount of money he would be foolish to say no. Also the playing life of most sports stars is not long in comparison to other forms of employment, so they need to make the money while they can. There is no saying that he will have any sort of career once his football days are over, so he need to make as much money now while he is in demand. This money is what he will have to live on for the rest of his life, because I suspect that once his football days are over the gloss will soon wear off him. He isn't highly educated at all and has no other career to fall back on at the end of football. I think that anyone who was in his position who didn't do as he is doing would be foolish. Certainly he does make a lot of money, but he also has high expenses, has to pay huge tax on his earnings and also has a family. It does seem to many that he is very wealthy, but in most cases these people do not have a lot of money because they spend a lot to keep in the limelight. The only chance is if he has a really good financial manager and I have no idea whether or not he has one.

no it is not like that..he did not have good time over football in real madrid...moreover there were some misunderstanding between beckham and capello the manager...he did not allow him to play even as substitute..he just played 5 or 6 matches this season..this might be the reason for his transfer and money dowsnt matter for him...
