Nothing glamorous about carrying the nappies and making the tea, says Becks

DAVID Beckham has given a glimpse of the less glamorous aspects of his lifestyle, which include carrying the nappy bag and making the tea.

He told BBC Breakfast that he makes the tea for his fashion-designer wife Victoria while she is creating her collections.

The father of four said his job in his "very organised" globe-trotting family is to take care of the nappy bag.

Victoria always walks with two of the boys while he always carries their toddler daughter, Harper, and one of the other boys when they travel.

Beckham is promoting a Manchester United documentary covering the period from 1992 when he, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs and Phil and Gary Neville were team-mates.

It also looks at how the six rose through the squad to top-level success.

The players, nicknamed the Class of 92, were all friends, and Beckham describes manager Sir Alex Ferguson as the "godfather – and not in a good way".

He added: "Not in a bad way, but we were all very scared of him."

The former England captain recalled that all six players moved through the ranks from youth team to first team plus national level "and we did it as friends".

He said: "We won everything in football – it doesn't get better than that."

 

KNIGHTHOOD

The film covers 1992 to 1999, culminating in the club's Champions League triumph.

Beckham (38) predicted an announcement about whether he would be in charge of a US soccer team would be "at some point before the new year", but said he would not be a manager.

And he remained tight-lipped about reports that he will get a knighthood to add to his OBE in the New Year Honours List.
