Former England and Manchester United midfielder David Beckham has bought a stake in Salford City, the National League club have announced.
The 43-year-old has followed in the footsteps of former United team-mates Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt and secured a 10 per cent stake in the club.
With the ‘Class of 92’ major shareholders now at 60 per cent, Peter Lim remains the largest shareholder with the remaining 40.
“It’s a proud moment for me to join Peter Lim and the Class of ’92 lads as an owner of Salford City FC,” Beckham said.
“It’s a really special club and a special group of people. My early years in Manchester were all spent in Salford. I grew up there in many ways so to be able to finally join the lads and the club today is a great feeling.”
Beckham’s involvement in the club comes five years after the Neville brothers, Scholes, Giggs and Butt took ownership at Moor Lane.
