David Beckham to return Vietnam next week


Retired football star David Beckham is expected to visit Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City on November 10 where he will have exchange activities with local fans and the media.
The former Manchester United and England captain shared the information in a clip that shared widely on Facebook recently. However, details of the visit are not available.
Local media cited unnamed sources as saying that he is going to visit Vietnam for his personal project.
This will be Beckham's third trip to Vietnam. He visited the country in 2003 and 2005.
Beckham retired from football after refusing to extend a contract with Paris Saint Germain in May 2013.

Becks appeal: The England legend posed for a photo with fans when he visited Vietnam in 2003.
Born in 1975, Beckham's professional career began with Manchester United, where he made his first-team debut in 1992 aged 17. With United, Beckham won the Premier League title six times, the FA Cup twice, and the UEFA Champions League in 1999.
He also played Real Madrid, Milan, Los Angeles Galaxy, Paris Saint-Germain, and the England national team.
Renowned for his range of passing and bending free-kicks, he has twice been runner-up for FIFA World Player of the Year, and in 2004 he was named in the FIFA 100 list of the world's greatest living players.
Consistently ranked among the sport's highest earners, in 2013 Beckham was listed as the best paid player in the world, earning over $50 million in the previous 12 months.
He has been married to Victoria Beckham since 1999, and they have four children.
The former Manchester United midfielder the ambassador for a variety of organizations, which include Sky Sports, Adidas and UNICEF.
