David Beckham on Wag behaviour
David Beckham admits the England Wags of 2004 and 2006 – including his own wife Victoria – went “a bit too far” during major tournaments.
Speaking with ex-Manchester United teammate Gary Neville on The Overlap, Beckham said: “There was a lot of attention around the families but I always believed, as an England captain, having the kids around and wives or girlfriends wasn’t a bad thing.
“But looking back, that whole culture, there was a lot of attention, and whether people behaved themselves in the right manner… I don’t know.
“Even Victoria, she is the first to say when she looks back: ‘What was I doing? What was I wearing? Why would I do that?’ I think it went a bit too far.
“There was more spoken about the Wags than the football. At that time, for the players, you want to focus on the tournament rather than anything else.
“I do think it went too far but I do believe having them there at the right time is a good thing.”

Good evening Man United fans
Man United will welcome Brighton to Old Trafford on the opening day of the 2022-23 Premier League season.
But the new Red Devils boss faces a much more difficult task in his next home game with Liverpool the visitors.
Before that United will travel to Brentford for their first away league fixture while visits to Southampton and Leicester round off a tough opening month.
After that, it is top-four rivals Arsenal who visit Old Trafford with the reverse fixture taking place on January 21.
Elsewhere, Paul Pogba claims he left Manchester United because he did not receive a substantial contract offer from the club.
He spoke about his contract negotiations with the late agent Mino Raiola, on new Amazon Prime documentary, titled ‘The Pogmentary.’
Meanwhile, United lost out on Porto ace Fabio Vieira to rivals Arsenal.
The Red Devils were reportedly tracking the attacking midfielder along with Tottenham.
But Arsenal mounted a shock swoop for Vieira, who is reportedly en route to London to undergo a medical before completing a £36m transfer.
Finally, Edinson Cavani has offered himself to LaLiga clubs on a free transfer as he bids to make Uruguay’s World Cup squad, reports claim.
The 35-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Old Trafford.
And Cavani has instructed his representatives to find him a club in Spain, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The same outlet labels Atletico Madrid as a potential destination, with Cavani coming close to joining the club twice in the past.
If a move to Spain is not possible then a big-money move to the MLS is also a possibility.
