David Beckham is slated to release his newest autobiography on October 31st.
The former England captain’s book will be released by French media company Lagardere – which recently published the biography of Sweden international soccer player, Zlatan Ibrahimovic – through their UK based Headline Publishing Group.
The world rights for the autobiography were purchased by Headline’s non-fiction publishing director, Jonathan Taylor, from Beckham’s management company, XIX Entertainment. The book is intended to be a personal celebration of the winger’s playing days at Manchester United, Real Madrid, Los Angeles Galaxy, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.
Taylor spoke glowingly of Beckham and his upcoming book: “David Beckham is, without a doubt, the most universally recognized and popular sports person on the planet, and this gorgeous book will be a superb way for his millions of fans around the world to celebrate David’s remarkable achievements within football,” Taylor said.
The book will cover the numerous club titles – which includes a Champions League medal, six Premier League titles and two FA Cups – Beckham accumulated through his career in England, Spain, the United States and France. It will also discuss the road that led to his outfield player record of 115 caps for The Three Lions.
Beckham has previously released four autobiographies: 1999’s David Beckham: My Story, 2001’s Beckham: My World, 2002’s David Beckham: My Side and 2003’s Beckham: Both Feet on the Ground.
