Victoria Beckham has said that the pressure experienced by David Beckham after he was given a red card in the match for the World Cup in 1998, has faced him with "deep depression".

In a new documentary series of the Netflix platform, called "Beckham" - which will be published on Wednesday - the career of the football star is discussed from the perspective of many people close to him.

In the second episode of the documentary, Victoria and David discuss the abuse they experienced in the late 90s, after David was sent off from a game against Argentina.

England have lost the game against Argentina after a fight with Diego Simeone.

Victoria said that David was "absolutely broken, he was in pieces".

"He was depressed, deeply depressed. I have suffered a lot, I still want to kill those people".

Discussing the abuse that surrounded him, David prayed that "there is a pill that can erase some memories."

"I made a big mistake. It has changed my life. The questions after I returned 'How can you betray your country? "You are a shame."

He said that he was abused every day during that period.

"Walking down the street and seeing people looking at you differently, spitting at you, abusing you, saying words to your face, it's hard. I haven't eaten, I haven't slept. I was very bad. I didn't know what to do."

"The boss (Alex Ferguson) called me. He said to me 'David, how are you?' I know I've become very emotional. He said to me 'how are you, son?' I told him 'no good boss'. He told me 'well, don't worry about this job'".

"It brings a lot of attention that I never wanted, especially for my parents, and I don't forgive myself for this. The most difficult thing was what happened, because I made the mistake".

During the episode, Victoria said that it is difficult to talk even now about the life threats that the couple experienced at that time.

They became parents for the first time in March 1999 and have four children: Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper./ REL
