Victoria Beckham Reveals David Beckham’s ‘Clinical Depression’

In an upcoming Netflix documentary titled ‘Beckham,’ the designer revealed that David experienced severe depression due to the intense public backlash. She expressed her enduring anger toward those responsible for the bullying, and she also criticized the team’s then-manager for not adequately supporting David during that challenging period.
Victoria Beckham criticized Glenn Hoddle, the then-manager of the team, for not protecting David during the World Cup backlash. She highlighted David’s young age, 23 at the time, and expressed her disappointment in Hoddle’s handling of the situation. David, who shares children with Victoria, revealed that the relentless “abuse” he faced after the match profoundly impacted his life, making him feel isolated in the aftermath.
David Beckham described the extreme ordeal he endured, where the entire country turned against him. The experience was life-changing, leaving him feeling vulnerable and isolated. He recounted how he faced relentless abuse wherever he went, with people spitting at him, verbally assaulting him, and making hurtful comments directly to his face. It was a challenging period for him.
“What I went through was so extreme. The whole country hated me. Hated me. It changed my life. I felt very vulnerable and alone. Wherever I went I got abuse every single day. People look at you in a certain way, spit at you, abuse you, come up to your face and say some of the things that they said. That was difficult.”
