The handsome athlete - who is married to former Spice Girls singer Victoria Beckham - says he was only interested in playing soccer when he was younger and not becoming the A-list star he is today.
He said: "I never wanted to be famous. I was never interested in anything else apart from becoming a footballer."
Despite being 36, David says he has no intention of retiring from the game just yet as he still believes he is good enough to play.
He told Men`s Health magazine: "I know what my limits are, what I can achieve and which passes I can play. So that`s been my game over the last few years: I have adapted to my age, different situations and the position that I`m playing in.
"I still love playing; I still love being part of a team. Right now I`m not even thinking about retiring."
The father-of-four recently signed a new two-year contract with the LA Galaxy and says he can`t wait until the new season starts in April.
He revealed: "We love it here. People still question why I made the decision to come to America but the answer is always the same; I want to achieve.
"I`ve won everything I ever wanted to win in Europe and had many great, successful years there."
