Rio punks Beckham: David Beckham’s life must be a bit scary at times, what with the paparazzi after him all the time. The degree to which Beckham has to hide from the media and worry about who’s watching him is probably overwhelming at times. Just watch how Beckham ducks down in the car at the start.
Here, Rio Ferdinand has a good laugh at Beckham’s expense…on his punked TV show, but you can see that at times Beckham does have to worry about how people or fans are going to react to seeing him. All of England was upset at him for a while, remember, when he got the red card in the World Cup versus Argentina.
There’s a serious concern underneath all this. Maybe Beckham is still young and not yet used to the almost oppressing pressure and attention he gets. And since he’s young he shouldn’t have to deal with it but such is world football. And whether he’s young or old nobody should have to worry that much about cameras or people following him. Yes, at times Beckham does invite this attention in things he does but he’s really a footballer at heart.
