I dream a lot about football and a lot of them have come true for me.
The England team should be managed by an English manager.
Whenever Man Utd lose people always say there`s a crisis.
As a footballer you always want to test yourself against the best.
In Spain people have lunch and dinner a lot later - when I return to England I`ll have to eat alone at midnight.
I like Victoria for herself, not for nothing else. I`d like her if she worked in Tesco.
"Shopping!" - Beckham describing his strengths
At home things are hard. For instance, my curtains are never open, I get no privacy at all. In fact, I can`t remember the last time I saw daylight in my house.
Alex Ferguson is the best manager I`ve ever had at this level. Well, he`s the only manager I`ve actually had at this level. But he`s the best manager I`ve ever had.
I definitely want (my son) Brooklyn to be christened, but I don`t know into what religion yet.
I have got this obsessive compulsive disorder where I have to have everything in a straight line, or everything has to be in pairs.
Nothing amazes me anymore.
People can say what they like. But me and Victoria will always stay together as husband and wife.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
I think the most important goal I scored in Spain was the first one because people were wary about me coming over to Spain as a player - they thought I was just there to sell shirts.
With United, we`d all grown up together, we all wanted to win the biggest trophy in football. We did it togther.
I still look at myself and want to improve.
Joining Real Madrid is a dream come true.
We`ve been asked to do `Playboy` together, me and Victoria, as a pair. I don`t think I`ll ever go naked, but I`ll never say never.
I wasn`t as fit as I would of liked to have been, going to the World Cup, but I`m not sure what difference that made.
I like nice clothes, whether they`re dodgy or not.
On Real Madrid: "To experience playing and being in the same team as these players is something that might not ever happen again - to have so many players in one team. I just wanted to be one of these stars and play in this team."
During the past few months, I have become accustomed to reading more and more ludicrous stories about my private life. The simple truth is that I am very happily married, have a wonderful wife and two very special kids. There is nothing that any third party can do to change these facts. - denying any affair with his former personal assistant, Rebecca Loos. (April 2004)
Tom cruise, he`s a lot more famous than me.
Pelé was a complete player. I didn`t see him live obviously, because I wasn`t born.
I`ve got more clothes than Victoria.
I have come to accept that if I have a new haircut it is front page news. But having a picture of my foot on the front page of a national newspaper is a bit exceptional.
You can practice penalties till the cows come home but it is different when you are out there in front of 60,000 people and the pressure is on.
Well, I can play in the centre, on the right and occasionally on the left side - when asked if he thought that he was a volatile player
I love scoring goals for England and playing for England. That`s one of the reasons I didn`t retire-I love playing for my country.
Every situation has changed me as a person.
I always wanted to be a hairdresser.
There`s room for boys` and girls` football in the world-that`s what I believe.
The buzz is still with me. I get goose bumps.
I love little kids looking up to me, young players looking up to me, respecting me.
My private life is perfect. If your private life and your life outside football is good, then it is good on the field for you.
The way I and my family have been treated is an absolute disgrace. At the end of the day, I`m a nice person and loving husband and father. I`ve been called a bad father, I`ve been called a bad husband and my wife has been called a bad mother. Things always hurt that are said about my family, and for people to call my wife a bad mother is unbelievable. I`m a strong person, I`m a strong family man, I`m a strong husband and a strong father.
When you have kids you do grow up. I have just started realising it now-it changes the world, having children.
I am happier now than I have ever been.
Everyone`s been so quick to say that I`m really thick or I haven`t got a brain. People will think whatever they want to think.
I`ve felt a little tired, but I`m only 24. I love playing football. That`s my job and that`s what I love doing.
If someone had said in 1998 after my sending off in the World Cup that I would be leading my country out within three years I would have laughed in their face.
I don`t think I`m really in a situation to complain, because I consider myself to be privileged to be doing what I do.
We stay as a team. I might be England captain, but that doesn`t mean I get treated differently.
Being at a club that supported me meant a lot.
My parents have been there for me, ever since I was about 7.
It`s one thing I like about America - they respect the sportsman. They put them up on a pedestal. They don`t try to knock them down. And that`s a great thing, to be respected by the whole country. It`s so patriotic!
The spotlight will always be on me, but it`s something I`m learning to live with as the years go by.
