Beckham Is A Two-Faced PR Machine, It Seems

Beckham Is A Two-Faced PR Machine, It Seems

Why on Earth David Beckham feels the need to interfere in the Ronaldo situation? Could not he just deflect the journalists' questions, insisting it's none of his business? Because right now he's making a fool of himself.

Back at the start of June, Beckham insisted Cristiano Ronaldo should stay at Manchester United. Here are his comments, if you're interested.

'I believe he's at the right club now, a club he should stay at.

'He's only been there a few years. He's got a lot of people around him there who will protect him.'


It's quite clear: he thinks it's the best if Ronaldo rejects Real Madrid.

Now fast forward until today when he, for reasons hitherto unexplained, appears to have changed his mind and urged Ronaldo to join the Spanish club.

"If someone asked if Cristiano Ronaldo should go to Madrid. I`d say 'Yes`.

"Real is a dream for any player so, of course, he would be a tremendous signing for Madrid and their fans.

"All the best want to play at the Bernabeu during their careers. It is a unique experience in football."


What? Two shamelessly contradictory statements, uttered with a little more than month between them. Unbelievable. Beckham suddenly turned into a Real Madrid PR machine and started spouting the Marca mantra... but he said it in the News of the World.

I had the utmost respect for Beckham, a Manchester United legend but this is very disappointing. He is of course free to express his opinion: but which one is his opinion, after all?

I would not put it past Real Madrid that they rang him to express their disappointment with his first comments and asked him to voice another opinion which suits their aims better... why would he agree to that I do not know but then again I have little information about Beckham's contracts and PR commitments.

All in all, I'm disappointed. He should have stuck to his first comments - or kept his mouth shut entirely. I'd have preferred the latter, I think.

That can't be real Beckham quotes, there are no 'erm' 'erm' 'erm' or 'y'know' 'y'know' 'y'know' within the sentances.

Dont pay attention to beckham..he's just jealous of where he ended up and where he could have been now if he wasnt such a Poshwhipped... Never mind them...If CR wants to go, then let him go...get the 100m, and replace him with not one but 3 world class players then....we'll see who'll be laughing then by the end of next year when we knock out his precious Real and cruise through the EPL with another heartless chelsea and losers Liverpool behind us...oh yes...and arsenal... The Daily Telegraph says we've agreed on 28m for Berbatov...Any comments? True or False? Good or bad decision?
