His success story begins in his early childhood, when the only passion he had was football. Manchester United was the team which he and his parents supported. David attended a football school and later as a junior he played for Tottenham Hotspur and Brimsdown Rovers teams.

The way I and my family have been treated is an absolute disgrace. At the end of the day, I'm a nice person and loving husband and father. I've been called a bad father, I've been called a bad husband and my wife has been called a bad mother. Things always hurt that are said about my family, and for people to call my wife a bad mother is unbelievable. I'm a strong person, I'm a strong family man, I'm a strong husband and a strong father.
