With the launch of Manchester United managerial icon Sir Alex Ferguson's new autobiography on Tuesday, footballing superstar David Beckham has made headlines due to the surprisingly critical comments made toward the ex-England star by his former boss.
Although 'Fergie' - who finally stepped down from the Old Trafford dugout after nearly 27 years at the helm following the climax of the 2012/13 season - was complimentary about Beckham as a person, he was somewhat scathing on the 38-year-old's apparent long-standing desire to be famous beyond football.
However, despite this rather unsavoury episode and Beckham's worldwide popularity, there was a time when the London-born man - renowned within the footballing fraternity for his pinpoint crosses and knack for producing world-class free-kicks - was a virtually unknown but joyous young man trying to make his way in professional football at Old Trafford.
In a funny and sweet video, Beckham appears as a teenager being given specific media training on how to handle interviews.
The right-wing maestro struggles with just keeping a straight face during the task, however, sporadically bursting into fits of giggles.
