'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Becks 'An Honour To Play With Keane'

David Beckham has picked up on Roy Keane's sudden exit from Manchester United to say he wished he hadn't left the club in a rush. Becks left Old Trafford to join Real Madrid in 2003 in much the same way the United captain left last week.

Beckham: 'Maybe United think that's the best way to do it, out before you know it. I'm not sure that I agree. I remember saying after I left that I would love to say goodbye and thank the manager and at least get a handshake.

'People criticised me for that, saying 'get on with it, it's football and that's how it is', but I had lived half my life there and I never said goodbye.

'I have never been back to play there with Madrid or for a United match. It is not easy because I live in Spain now, but I would love to go back and see people.

'There have been a few dramatic exits. Mine came as more of a surprise to me than anyone else. Roy Keane's was a shock too, but I hope he is remembered for the 12 years and the trophies and not his departure. It was an honour to be in the same side.'
