As David Beckham announces his retirement from soccer, wife Victoria says she is “so proud” of her gorgeous husband and says she’s looking forward to the family’s next adventure.

“The children and I are so proud of David, it’s been an incredible journey for us all as we have watched him play at clubs all over the world throughout the last 15 years,” Victoria said in a statement today.

“Myself and the children have cheered him from the stands, as he has held high trophies with his teams at Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, LA Galaxy and Paris Saint-Germain,” she continued.

“This was not an easy decision to make, and to me and the children he will always be an amazing sportsman and a devoted husband and father.”

“He is, and will always remain, a true ambassador for sport and is not just an inspiration to myself and our children but for millions of people worldwide.

“We are all excited about the next chapter in our lives and the adventures we will explore as a family.”

Victoria also tweeted an adorable photo of both of them, saying: “Thank you for all your lovely messages, we are so proud of you David x vb.”

Beckham will play his last game on May 26, and the family will likely move back to London.
