A concerned medic even forced the footballer to get his pulse checked.Beckham was on practice session on New Year's Eve in Dubai ahead of a friendly match with German giants Hamburg SV on January 6. He is with currently with AC Milan, which has taken him on loan from LA Galaxy.
But after every 30 second bout of rigorous exercise the father-of-three had to stop to recuperate.Beckham's lackluster display comes despite AC Milan's club doctor Jean-Pierre Meerseeman saying earlier this week that the midfielder still had a lot of life left in him as a professional footballer and said that Beckham could go on for another five or six years.
"His cardiovascular readings are very good. His basic fitness is excellent. All he needs to do now is to alter his training programme slightly," said Meerseeman.Beckham missed spending New Year's with wife Victoria and their children to stay in Dubai to train for his next match.
