David Beckham Covers 'Men's Health' March 2012

David Beckham takes the cover of Men’s Health‘s March issue.

Here’s what the 36-year-old soccer star had to share:

On fatherhood: “It would be easy for our kids to sit back and not work for anything, but they’re not like that. They’re as competitive as Victoria and me. We’re very lucky with our boys: They want to win. They want to work at something. They know their values. That’s the way we’ve brought them up so far, and that’s the way we’ll continue to bring them up.”

On getting older: “Even at 36, I’m still running 12 miles a game. [But] I’ve definitely become more aware on the field. I know what my limits are, what I can achieve, and which passes I can play. I have adapted to my age.”

On family and friends: “I’ve got friends at the different teams I’ve played for, but family is the most important thing to me. That will always be the case. I’ve got my wife. I’ve got my four kids. I’ve got parents, grandparents still, and three really good friends. It’s all you need. I’d rather have three really good friends than 20 good friends.”

    You are right aly he is overrated like most sports men and woman and blow up in proportion.
    But he is right when it comes to friends having only a few hands you can count on one hand then have so many souround you that its hard to tell who are liars or out to service their own needs.
    I picked the first choice I do not have a massive social circle but the friends I

  • Nikki

    Then why even open this and comment?

    lol, this is the Adam Lambert haircut in blonde. It does suit AL better.

  • Frozoid

    Sorry those tattoos are disgusting – and scary. If I were one of his kids I’d be running away screaming from him.

    Just looking at them gives me nightmares. Why in God’s name would he do this to himself?

    Overrated?This is an athlete who at 35 came back from a cruel Achilles injury which put him out of competitive action for six months.

    I do not know of anyone at that age who would come back and be able to compete and win a trophy. He was the most influential in the MLS playoffs and managed to compete with players almost half his age. .Most athletes after such an injury at that age would have given up and probably called it a day ……………He loves his sport and with dedication and hard work he came back and won MLS championship trophy getting his own acclaim from sports journalists who previously criticised him.
    He is a great athlete and GORGEOUSs to boot!! He deserves this cover and he is looking FIT! Eat your heart out haters

    @GlamBeckhams blog: This is Mens Health USA cover so the cover and full set of pictures inside will perhaps differ from the UK edition, which is what you posted

  • Gale

    Hottest athlete around.

  • Annie

    I loved his pranks on the ellen degeneres show. I get the impression that he and Victoria are down to earth, kind people from their interviews. Their kids are so lucky to have them as parents!
