By Community | October 3, 2014

David Beckham’s personal income since he retired from professional football has decreased according to the 2013 accounts for the company that handles Beckham’s personal endorsements.

Footwork Productions showed that revenue dropped to £14.8 million ($A27 million) from £6.5 million ($A30 million) in 2012.

The former England captain stopped playing in May 2013 after five months at Paris Saint-Germain, having left Major League Soccer in December 2012 following more than five years at the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The Footwork Productions accounts show that the company’s main activity is the “exploitation of David Beckham’s name and image rights.”

Beckham has deals to promote a host of companies including sportswear firm adidas, clothing firm H&M and British broadcaster BSkyB.
