Former football star: David Beckham: After documentary, anonymous apology on car

Last autumn, Netflix released a documentary about Beckham that also sheds light on the difficult phases of his life. Since then, the former football star has even received anonymous apologies, he says.

Former soccer star David Beckham says he has experienced more sympathy for his previous difficult experiences since his Netflix documentary. He still has a note stuck to the windshield of his car when he and his wife Victoria recently came out of a bar, the 49-year-old told the US magazine “Variety”. “It said: ‘We are sorry for the way you were treated.'” The note did not say who had written the text. “I think that’s how people felt after the documentary,” said Beckham.

Last autumn, the streaming service Netflix released a documentary about the former England international football player. Among other things, it examines his treatment by the public after the 1998 World Cup.

Beckham received a red card in the round of 16 match against Argentina and had to watch from the sidelines as England were knocked out of the tournament on penalties. The failure was largely blamed on him and he was sometimes subjected to severe hostility. As Beckham said in the autumn, he then experienced a depressive episode.

The former football star explained that he himself had learned from the documentary “Beckham” “how important mental health is. Because 20 years ago nobody talked about it.” Today it is “so great that people can actually talk about their feelings.”
