Beckham, who spent 12 years at Manchester United as a youth player and then first-team star, posted his message on Instagram following his former club’s win over Ajax in the final.
“Tonight was more important than sport,” Beckham said. “Yes a big night for Manchester United but an even bigger night for the city and for our country.
“At a time when we are grieving for the families that have lost loved ones we have a sport that has bought a little happiness at a difficult time.
“We pray for peace.”
Beckham’s comments were echoed by Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Manchester City, among others, following the tragic attack at Manchester Arena.
