PES fans prepare to be excited – David Beckham has been confirmed for the new game.
Arguably the most recognisable football player of modern times, Beckham’s 20-year career saw him win 19 major trophies as he played for title-winning teams in England, Spain, Italy and the United States of America.
He was the first British player to be featured in 100 UEFA Champions League matches, and enjoyed an international career that garnered 115 England caps.
The Leyton-born star will see his incredible career recreated in-game as a Legend in the forthcoming PES 2018.
“It’s a great honour to join the roster of legends that work with KONAMI as PES Ambassadors,” said Beckham.
“I look forward to seeing my career represented in this fantastic game, and working with such a talented team of people who obviously love football as much as I do.”
Following PES 2018’s launch on September 14th, several versions of David Beckham from key points of his career will be featured in the game’s myClub mode.
Five eras will be represented, from his formative years in England, through to his times in Spain, Italy and the United States of America, alongside one representing his International profile.
