In the world of football, the iconic No. 7 shirt has adorned the shoulders of some of the sport’s greatest legends. While many fans might associate this legendary jersey with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and George Best, it’s essential to remember that this prestigious shirt was once donned by none other than David Beckham during his tenure at Manchester United.

In a recent interview on “Classic Shirts,” Beckham shared a fascinating anecdote about how he came to possess the iconic No. 7 shirt and a pivotal phone call from Sir Alex Ferguson that took place during his time in Malta.

It was during an interview about the memorable football shirts he has worn throughout his illustrious career when Beckham revealed the unique story behind his acquisition of the No. 7 shirt. He disclosed that it all happened when he was on holiday in Malta. Beckham explained that he was relaxing on this beautiful getaway when he received the call that would change the course of his career.

Sir Alex Ferguson, the legendary manager of Manchester United, rang Beckham while he was in Malta to deliver some surprising news. The then-Young Player of the Year was about to have his iconic No. 10 shirt taken away from him. Beckham had been closely associated with the No. 10 shirt, and it was a symbol of his career at that point. However, Ferguson informed him that it would be given to another Manchester United legend, Teddy Sheringham.

Beckham’s revelation during the “classic shirts” interview sheds light on the emotional and impactful nature of that phone call. It marked a significant turning point in his career. While it may have initially come as a shock, Beckham’s response to the situation was a testament to his professionalism and dedication to the sport. He went on to make the iconic No. 7 shirt his own, creating a legacy that endures to this day.
