Fair Play to Beckham

Fair Play to Beckham

As soon as David Beckham announced that he was leaving LA Galaxy, you just knew that there would be a real clamour for his signature.

Yesterday it was announced that he`d signed for the French club, Paris St Germain.

It turns out that Beckham had numerous opportunities to return to the Premier League, with Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United being just two of the possible candidates, but the former England midfielder just couldn`t see himself in any other Premier League shirt other than ours.

During his lengthy press conference, Beckham stated that he could never play against United as that was where his heart was, or as David so honestly put it,

"I`ve been successful with Manchester United and have always said I would never play for another English club."

"I`ve got a lot of history with United, they were the team I supported and dreamed of playing for."

"I was honoured by other offers I`ve had from Premier League teams. But unless it was Manchester United, I wouldn`t want to play for any other Premier League team. I couldn`t do it."


Fair play to the lad.

Don't think he's going to get his romantic return in his playing career. Would be nice to have him as an ambassador at the club when his playing days are over though. Lost a lot of respect for him when he went to LA Galaxy when the opportunity for top flight football was still there but his regained some of that respect when he said he was giving his wages to charity. Best of luck to him and whilst I don't want to see PSG win Ligue 1 im at a conflict as i think it would be nice for Becks to cap off a great career with another top flight medal in another country.

A true United legend, always respectful and gracious in his comments. He will go down as one of the best wingers in United history. I hated the fact he went to Real, but I respect SAF's decision, I just think Becks would have stayed his entire career at United had it not been for the detoriated relationship between Becks and SAF. Respect for donating his wages to charity, he will 100% be back as United ambassador once he hangs up his boots.

Fair play to Becks very decent thing of him to do. Would love to see him back at the club in some type of capacity. Off topic but has anyone seen the picture of him with the hand written note about city?
