First rule of donation; Don't tell everyone you've donated. Clearly he's fishing for an OBE. There's probably footballers out there who've donated to charity and kept it shut whilst David runs straight to the press.
I don't think he's fishing for an honour.
He will get an OBE & more in time if never appears in the papers, magazines or on TV ever again.
Remember, this is a guy who was awarded a lifetime achievement award for services to football at the age of 35 whilst still playing football.
