Fergie Blames Victoria?

Fergie Blames Victoria?

The United boss has as good as admitted that Victoria Beckham is to blame for his falling out with David Beckham.

Sir Alex Ferguson voiced his belief that David Beckham in himself won't be enough to lift football among the major American sports (and I know that something they call football is already there of course).

'In the late 70s I went to America with Aberdeen and there were guys like Cubillas and Shilton there,' he said.

'There was Pele, Cruyff, Beckenbauer. It is difficult with David going there - I don't know what kind of impact he can make. David Beckham himself can't change the whole country.'

He pointed out that six-hour flights between cities just make it impossible for rivalries to develop - and he seems to regard them as the bread and butter of football.

Yet the far more interesting note is what he said about Becks' marriage. United fans have grown to love blame Victoria for Beckham's departure to Real Madrid. Guys who pitied a wife and mother being lambasted far and wide ridiculed this attitude but now it's Sir Alex himself who seems to be supporting of this theory.

'He was never a problem until he got married. He used to go into work with the academy coaches at night time, he was a fantastic young lad.

'Getting married into that entertainment scene was a difficult thing - from that moment his life was never going to be the same.

'He is such a big celebrity, football is only a small part. The big part is his persona.'


Until he got married, he was not a celebrity and wasn't followed everywhere by the press. After that, he's too big a celebrity. So the wife is to blame. Neat, isn't it? Do you agree with Fergie?

Yeah but we couldn't have done with him sulking on the bench for the biggest part of last season. Selling Beckham wasn't such a grave mistake - not replacing him, that led to disaster. Ronaldo wasn't quite ready for it at that time.

i think it was the season before last you mean and if i remember rightly you didn't win the league so why didn't fergie play his best strike force van the man is to good to be sitting on the bench for that long and fergie has a history with having bust ups with big name players. the reason i said fergie made mistake in selling beckham is because the bloke was playing well and was bringing in alot of money as well fergie will NEVER admit it but they are his two biggest mistakes
