As mentioned earlier, Beckham’s My Side tells the story of the footballer’s life starting with his childhood in East End London to his rise as one of the most talented football players of his generation and of course all about his professional career. Besides the most outstanding moments of his career, he also openly speaks about less glorious events. He of course also talks about his relationship with his wife Victoria and how they met as well as how the attention of the world media affects his family.
