It’s been a busy week for David, who launch his four-part documentary series on Netflix this week after Tuesday’s London premiere. 

The tell-all Beckham documentary sees the couple give an intimate insight into their marriage and early romance, their family life and David’s footballing career. 

In the series, David revealed he was forced to cut his honeymoon with wife Victoria short after Sir Alex Ferguson hauled him back to training. 

The footballer tied the knot with Victoria, 49, on July 4, 1999, at Luttrellstown Castle in Ireland with the couple then jetting off to the South of France. 

Speaking about the trip on his docuseries BECKHAM, David explained: ‘We had a short honeymoon. We ended up at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s house in the South of France – I have no idea how we ended up there!’

The couple looked more loved-up than ever in never-before-seen snaps from the trip, with the pair kissing in the ocean and cuddling up together in their swimwear. 

Yet they crashed back to reality with a bang, with David explaining: ‘We were meant to be there for ten days but the manager called me about five days in said “I need you back in training”.’ 

David and Sir Alex had a famously fractious relationship and Gary Neville confirmed: ‘Ringing David up five days after his wedding is classic Sir Alex Ferguson. “Get back here you flash b*****d.” 

‘Sir Alex Ferguson had an uncanny habit of bringing you back down to earth.’ 

Speaking in the docuseries, Manchester United legends revealed David and Victoria Beckham’s relationship used to ‘p*** off’ Sir Alex.

As they were both high-profile celebrities before dating, Posh and Becks generated extreme levels of publicity and media attention, and it’s claimed this angered Ferguson during the early stages of their relationship.

The manager believed that David’s relationship with Victoria ‘changed’ him as a footballer, as he was more focused on his celebrity status rather than his efforts on the pitch for Manchester United.

Former teammate Paul Scholes said: ‘His relationship with Victoria was p***ing the manager off. He thought it was affecting his football.’

Meanwhile, fellow Red Devils icon Paul Ince revealed Sir Alex used to do background checks on his players’ love lives, eager for them to be in ‘stable’ relationships.

‘Sir Alex liked you to be stable. He looked at your background. Didn’t want you to be out partying every night,’ he said.

When asked about their relationship Sir Alex admitted: ‘He changed, there’s no doubt about that – and all the media and celebrity attention was different from what I wanted.’
