Becks 'An Honour To Play With Keane'

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.'
