Top 5: David Beckham Career Lows

Given that the Prince of English football has recently retired, we thought it would be only apt to give you a run-down of Mr Beckham’s highs and lows throughout an illustrious and eventful career. I hope you have already seen the David Beckham Career Highs, and here we have the Top 5 David Beckham Career Lows…

David Beckham Career Lows

5. The Cornrows
One of the great mans hairstyles had to make the list, and this style was a little bit bizarre, but Becks persisted with the style while his hair grew out, and used it to keep his hair neat for some time while it was long. It was a style which tended to suit former Manchester United colleague Rio Ferdinand a bit better, and of all Beckhams hairstyles over the years this is our least favourite.


4. Black leather matching outfit

A fashion faux pas from the Beckham’s plural here and so wrong in so many ways. Not only is an all leather outfit a bit S&M, but the fact your wife is wearing the same thing is just not ideal at all. Good thing for us Victoria grew to be a very successful fashion designer and David a style icon for his generation. Cringe.


3. Fergie throwing the boot

The famous Alex Ferguson “hairdryer treatment” is legendary in the Manchester United dressing room, and Beckham experienced it firsthand. It is alleged that Sir Alex lost his temper after a game, and kicked a discarded boot which flew and hit poor Becks in the face. Beckham was less than happy, Sir Alex refused to apologise, and Becks left United for Real Madrid that summer.


2. The Sarong

The Sarong was a bit of a fashion faux pas then, and it still is now. Layered over linen trousers, it was just a bit random. Luckily since then, Monsieur Beckham has turned into someone of a fashion icon, but this wasn’t one of his better moments.


1. Getting sent off against Argentina

For an unnecessary but provoked kick on the then Argentina central midfielder Diego Simeone, Beckham was duly sent off in the World Cup quarter final. It was perhaps the most controversial moment in Beckham’s career, but one that defined him as a person both on and off the pitch. It was the villain turned nations hero, and his resurgence showed great strength of character.
