Yesterday i was criticising him about this exact point. I was joking saying how much more money does he need. Why not just stop playing, why go to France. With this he has shown a very good reason to play on.
How many of us would have not minded Tendulkar playing on if he would have donated his salary to charities during the last year.
Beckham said he will donate the wages earned during his five-month contract to a childrens charity in Paris.
