Beckham said, "It's amazing to visit a project like this and see the effect football has on young people. Football has the power to change lives and the youngsters are able to learn valuable lessons through their love of the game. I feel privileged to have met these children and despite the fact we come from different backgrounds we share a love for the game of football."
