In a file picture takenon March 20, 2013 football superstar David Beckham answers a question during a press conference at a primary school in Beijing in his role as ambassador for the Chinese Super League. David Beckham will not be short of work offers after he ended a playing career that made him a globally recognised celebrity, with sponsors and sporting bodies jostling to secure his services. The former Manchester United, Real Madrid and Los Angeles Galaxy star expressed the hope as he announced his retirement on Thursday that he would be best remembered as a footballer, rather than a celebrity. But Beckham's tattoo-covered body and ever-changing hairstyles have been plastered on advertising billboards around the planet for years and his retirement from competitive football, and the commitments it entails, is expected to only increase his value to sponsors.
