Beckham has Asthma! ~ Agent: Asthmatic Beckham can inspire sufferers

I just read this from soccernet. I'm a huge Man United fan and as far as I know the only player with asthma problem was Paul Scholes.

Now it seems that Becks was asthmatic as well. I guess you can still succeed even if you have asthma. I know it because I too have asthma.

Here's the article that I got off from soccernet. Enjoy!

David Beckham has secretly suffered from a mild form of asthma since childhood, but could now be seen an inspiration to fellow sufferers of the breathing condition, according to the player's agent.

David Beckham and LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena ponder defeat

The 34-year-old Beckham was photographed on Sunday using an inhaler during L.A. Galaxy's 5-4 defeat on penalties by Real Salt Lake in Major League Soccer's championship game in Seattle.

"David has suffered with this since he was a young boy, but it has obviously had no effect on his performance," Beckham's agent Simon Oliveira was quoted as saying in the Daily Mail.

"He has never sought to make it public but if it does inspire any sufferer to think they can achieve great things like many other sportsmen have done then so much the better."

Beckham played all 120 minutes of the MLS Cup after injuries to team-mates used up Galaxy's substitutes. He was coughing badly after the game having struggled with a cold in the lead up the match, while he also limped through much of the match after pain-killing injections on a bruised ankle wore off in the first half.

Beckham scored his penalty but Galaxy captain Landon Donovan was among those to miss and Salt Lake won the shootout after a 1-1 draw following extra time to claim a surprise triumph.

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United midfielder will rejoin AC Milan on loan in January as he bids to make England's World Cup squad for next year's finals in South Africa.
