Would you like a golden 32Gb iPod? Then you have three options: Play soccer for England 100 times, get rich, or burgle David Beckham’s house in Los Angeles.
David Beckham, the bender of balls, and star player for both L.A. Galaxy and England, managed to secure his 100th cap for his country last week, and his team-mates saw fit to reward him for his efforts.
With the money footballers earn these days, they could have probably clubbed together to buy him an executive jet, or a house or two, but no, according to The Telegraph, he has to make do with a golden iPod.
Although it may be a fitting gift for the man they call Goldenballs, I would have thought a squad of 25 players, all of whom earn upwards of £100,000 a week each could have spent a little bit more than the £600 needed for this iPod.
It may be 32GB, and be personalised with the three lions, and Beckham’s name, but come on, at just £600 (I’ll take two), it’s a bit cheap isn’t it?
Beckham reached his century of matches in the friendly against France last week, but it clearly takes a while for a footballer’s brain to cotton on to the fact they should buy him a memento.
If I was Beckham, I’d be sat in my LA mansion right now thinking: I have played my heart out for England for over ten years now, and all I got for my troubles was a lousy iPod.
