London: Soccer star David Beckham has joked that he can`t retire because he has to keep his baby daughter in designer clothes.

The 37-year-old said he would like to work less but 11-month-old daughter Harper has the same expensive tastes as mother Victoria Beckham, reported Contactmusic.

"I`m totally wrapped around her finger. The moment she was born, I think me and the boys, we were all done. Her wardrobe is unbelievable. It`s amazing. I think that`s why I have to keep playing," he said.

The couple who are based in California have three other children, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.

David also said that he ignores critics who say that he would only get picked for Great Britain`s football team at the London Olympics because of his celebrity status.

"I don`t really take too much interest in those kinds of comments. But I have said that I felt that those comments are disrespectful, because I`ve had kind of a successful career with what I do," he said.
