DAVID Beckham is filmed doing a jig with wife Victoria in a trailer for a new Netflix documentary.
The four-part series, Beckham, focuses on his life and career.
The footie hero, 48, claims he was “drowning” when his fame soared and his England career briefly faltered in the late Nineties.
He adds that he “felt vulnerable and alone”.
David also talks of when Sir Alex Ferguson kicked a boot at him which cut his head open — and reveals he went for the Manchester United manager.
But Fergie is still seen praising him saying: “There was something inside him — that determination.”

In the trailer a haunted looking David says: “I don’t think I’ve ever talked about it, just because I can’t.
"I wasn’t eating, I wasn’t sleeping. It took a toll on me that I never even knew myself.”
