David Beckham: I'd work with kids

David Beckham wants to work with "amazingly truthful young people" when his soccer profession comes to an end.

The 37-year-old LA Galaxy star has enjoyed an illustrious international career, seeing his popularity rise in various countries across the world.

Many have tipped David to be the next England soccer manager, but he insists passing on his skills to the younger generation is what he really wants to do when his days on the pitch are over.

"People always ask me what I want to do when I've finished playing, and they say, 'Do I want to go into management?'" he told British newspaper The Telegraph.

"To be honest I've never wanted to go into management. I love coaching kids, I love working with kids. They're amazing people. They're amazingly truthful, young people, and that's what I love doing."

David is regularly seen indulging in activities with the family he raises with wife Victoria. The pair have four children together; sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz and baby daughter Harper.

David helped deliver the Olympic torch to England recently, ahead of the 2012 games in London. He has gushed about the coveted opportunity.

"It was incredible," he said. "To bring the flame back from Athens into England was a huge honour for myself and I'm very proud of that."
