Man Utd icon Beckham admits missing big-time football

David Beckham admits he's missing football after retiring this year.

Beckham, who spent a glittering career at Manchester United, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain, added that he missed 'the buzz' but ultimately believes he made the right decision to retire when he did as he gets to spend more time with his family and pursue other interests.

"I feel this pang of regret whenever I watch sport; this sense that I will never play a big match again," he said in an interview with The Times.

Beckham added: "I guess those feelings are inevitable when you have just retired from sport. You miss the buzz. Nothing will replace it.

"But I don't regret the decision to retire. My body was losing its edge. I was taking longer to recover from injuries. You have to get out at some point."
