The soccer star struck up a Friendship with the actor - who was recently left devastated by the breakdown of his marriage to Katie Holmes - when he moved to Los Angeles and loves spending time with the father-of-three.
He said: ''Do I ride my bikes with Tom? Yeah I do. Have we become good friends over the years? Yes, we have become very good friends. It's not a big celebrity thing. It's just something that happened. And it's good to have friends like that.
''He's a really good person. Tom is one of the hardest working people I know. He never stops. He's a great dad and he's got a great family behind him.''
David and his wife Victoria are also friends with chef Gordon Ramsay and the sportsman admits their pal is a regular visitor to their home and is even happy to cook for them.
He added: ''There is a good chance of Gordon being round [our house] cooking a beef Wellington.''
In December, it was rumoured that David was to be transferred to French soccer team Paris Saint-Germain and while he was ''tempted'' by the move, the sportsman and his family are too happy In America to want to relocate.
He told Esquire magazine: ''It was an option, obviously. We had to thing about it because the five-year deal I signed here was up. And because I won the MLS championship last year, that was the thing that was playing on my mind. I was thinking maybe it's time to move on.
''Living in Paris, playing for a big European team was enticing I must admit. It was something I seriously thought about. But we weren't ready to leave. We've got a great lifestyle here. We've got great friends.''
