Passion for soccer
Since David began to walk, his father sent his two great passions, football and Manchester United, who at the time was a rather mediocre team, they had not won a league title since 1975. Eight-year-old David started playing in the neighborhood team, the Ridgeway Rovers, for whom he scored over a hundred goals in three seasons.
At eleven, his life took a radical turn after winning at Old Trafford, the famous football skills competition which organized the legendary Sir Bobby Charlton.
