The pin-up revealed how his Class of 92 teammates required him to perform an embarrassing sex act whilst staring at the mug of eighties Reds legend Clayton Blackmore.
Becks said he got the short-straw with his humiliation, squirming as he remembered: ‘One of mine was surprising! The Clayton Blackmore!’
Recalling his teen horror, he said: ‘Everyone had an initiation that you had to go through on the youth team, that was one of the most uncomfortable ones!’
‘The fact that I had to look at Clayton Blackmore’s calendar and do certain things, while looking at Clayton Blackmore…’

had to perform an embarrassing sex act on himself in front of teammates.
More than happy to shake Clayton’s grinning face from his psyche, Beckham said: ‘I mean it was embarrassing to talk about!’
Forced to recall the full scale of the horror on camera for the documentary, the 38-year-old said: ‘I was embarrassed when I was saying it on camera let alone talking about it more. But it’s something that we all had to go through. It was definitely something I wouldn’t like to go through again!’
Meanwhile, Beckham’s teammates Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and the Neville brothers ear-marked Becks for stardom the day he blinged up his free car that they were each given by the club.

Who wouldn’t pound it to this guy?
Despite being responsible for sarongs, Mohawks and tattoos imitated by male admirers world over, Becks insists he never dreamed of being a celebrity icon.
‘As a young kid all I ever wanted to be was a professional footballer,’ said Becks, who looks at his red carpet moments with Victoria as icing on the cake.
‘Everything else that has come along with my life and my career is a bonus. I am very privileged to be in the position that I am in, to have done what I’ve done,’ he explained but says his eye is still on the ball.
‘But the only thing that ever interested me was to be a footballer and to play for Manchester United and England and the fact that I have achieved that, I’m very proud of that but obviously everything that has come with that, you know I’m also proud of.’
He goes fuzzy inside to think that the goals and thrills he and his Red Devil brothers delivered in the nineties have been turned into a cinematic experience, a la Senna and Nelson Mandela.
‘It’s kind of amazing because obviously we have talked about it for years and the success that we have had as individuals and as a team, to actually see it on film is something that we’re proud of,’ he said.
‘To have grown up as young as we were and to achieve what we did at a club that we loved, it doesn’t get any better than that.’
The Class of 92 world premiere will be staged in London on Sunday.
