The former LA Galaxy soccer star has signed a five month contract with Paris St Germain and announced he will not be paid during his time there but has instead made provisions for the money to go to a charity in France`s capital city.
Speaking at a press conference in Paris on Thursday (31.01.13), David said: "For me it`s always been about playing football, I considered other offers on the table. But one of the reasons I wanted to come to Paris was quite unique.
"We`ve decided my salarywill go towards a local children`s charity in Paris and that`s one of the things we`re very excited and proud to be able to do. I`m not sure it`s been done before but it`s something I`m very passionate about.
"I`m pleased that we can give a huge sum to a children`s charity in Paris - it`s very special." David, 37, also revealed his wife Victoria and children - Brooklyn, 13, Romeo, 10, Cruz, seven, and 18-month-old Harper - won`t move to Paris with him as the boys are settled into schools in London.
He said: "I am excited it`s something that we`ve been talking about for quite a while and now it`s finally happened. My wife and children will be staying in London because the children go to school there now.`
