David Beckham is featured in the September 2008 issue of Mens Health Magazine, which hits newsstands on August 12.
On being told he was too small to play soccer professionally: As upset as I was at the time, it made me think, 'I'm going to prove I can play football professionally.
On being famous: There is this madness around me, around my family. Without a doubt, out on the field is where I'm most comfortable, where I'm happiest, because I know what I'm doing and I know I can do it.
