David Beckham and Diego Maradona, two legendary football players and philanthropists, met in UAE’s capital Dubai.
UK football star flew in for an event with UNICEF at Level Kids in City Walk to mark a partnership between the charity and the store. For David, this isn’t his first visit to the United Arab Emirates – he popped into Mall of the Emirates last year but this time he met personally with the god of the football, Diego Maradona. Both professional players were happy to see each other and uploaded several photos on social media.
David Beckham is working with UNICEF for more than 10 years, he often takes part in the different raising money events all over the world.
“Raising money is never easy [until] people realise what they’re raising money for and what they’re spending their money on,”
Another pleasant moment in the business trip to the UAE is the spending a really quality time with Argentine football hero Diego Maradona. The retired player lives in the UAE and manages Al-Fujairah SC.
Beckham was clearly delighted, sharing a photo of the pair on Instagram and captioning it “Big hug from the best.”
For his part, Maradona was also pleased, sharing two photos of himself with Beckham. The fans of David Beckham have already called that meeting in Dubai ‘historical’ – one football star meets another, two generations of footballers.
Actually, this week is extremely busy for David Beckham, he attended his sister’s baby celebration and posed for pictures with the pregnant Joanne Beckham, who looked glamorous in a black plunging dress that flowed over her blossoming bump, and their mum and dad Sandra and Ted Beckham.
