David Beckham celebrated with his three boys after the Los Angeles Galaxy beat the Houston Dynamo 1-0 on Sunday to win their first MLS Cup!
Despite taking home his third championship with his third team in what could be his final season of soccer in El Lay, David was less concerned about the moment and more concerned about his kids.
After the final whistle blew, the soccer superstar immediately ran off the field to search for Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, who joined him and the rest of the team during the trophy ceremony.
Since his sons were too young to enjoy the last two championship titles, it was important for David to share the experience with them, as he explained:
“These are life-changing moments. I’ve been lucky enough to have children at a very young age, so Brooklyn, my oldest, has experienced being on the turf at Old Trafford and seeing me pick the Premiership [trophy] up, and all three of them were on the pitch at Real Madrid and all three of them were there tonight. These are great memories. I want my children to be a part of that. My little girl is a little too young for that but she was there with my wife.”
This may also be the last championship title Beckham is lucky enough to be a part of himself. His 5 year contract, which began in 2007 with the Galaxy, is expired after this season.
At 36-years-old and with a newborn child at home, he's got a big decision to make, telling sources:
“I need to sit back and relax and enjoy this moment and decide what I’m going to do. I might talk in the past tense every now and again but that doesn’t mean I’m not coming back. At the end of the day I need to decide what’s best for me, what’s best for the team and what’s best for my family. We’ll see. It’s been an amazing five years.”
Oddly enough, this is the third soccer championship Beckham helped his team achieve during which he was in his final year of contract.
Can David win another one before he retires or is third time the charm? Either way, congrats on the MLS Cup, guys!
