He'll be 38 in the summer.Why doesn't he just summon up some rare dignity and call it a day?
Yes that is a rhetorical question.
Because he still feels he can play well. Teddy Sheringham didn't retire until he was 42, so some players do continue longer.
Beckham even joked in the press conference yesterday that he didn't feel that he'd lost any pace as he didn't have much to start with!
