Soccer superstar David Beckham has no plans to venture into management when he retires from the game - he wants to become an astronaut.

The Real Madrid ace, married to former SPICE GIRL Victoria Beckham, is desperate to follow in the footsteps of space explorers like Neil Armstrong and journey to the Moon.

Beckham says, "It would be great to have the opportunity to go to the Moon when I retire. It would be a real experience.

"A lot of players go into coaching, but I've decided it is not for me."
