David Beckham’s Ruud Awakening

by | 4th, January 2008

WHO knew that Ruud Gullit would be delivering his “sexy football” to David Beckham’s Los Angeles Galaxy team?

The two have more in common than just football. In Hello!, Gullit shows the world his Amsterdam home where “pride of place” goes to a certificate her received from Nelson Mandela.

Beckham has also met Mandela. Everyone has to meet Mandela, it being a rite of celebrity passage. At any moment of the day, there is a line of twenty five celebrities stood outside Mandela’s home waiting to meet the man.

Some will get a certificate, others a photo to cherish or a £10 book token and the advice to be good.

Back to Gullit who tells us: “Celebrity does not impress me… I think many people confuse LA with Hollywood. It is a big city, people work, they do not spend their lives going to parties.”

So what about David Beckham? “He is just another player to me,” says Gullit, “I am looking forward to working with the whole team.” It’s not all about David Beckham.

“How well do you know, David?” asks Hello!. Then: “David has drawn criticism in England for posing in his pants for an Armani ad campaign. Ho do you feel about that?”

Says Estelle Gullit, Ruud’s wife: “When I first met Victoria Beckham, I thought ‘My God,. She is so slim.!”

Slim. Nothing of it. Vicky’s just anther working mum bring up her kids in LA…
