BECKHAM WATCHES WONDERGOAL

David Beckham was recently in the stands of Upton Park to witness Wayne Rooney scoring a goal that was remarkably similar to the effort he achieved at Wimbledon in 1996. David Beckham then managed to outwit the opposition goalkeeper Neil Sullivan with a lob from the centre of the park.

It has long been developed as one of the best goals in the Premier league history, but Rooney has managed to replicate it with an effort of his own against West Ham United. After the match, Rooney joked that he suffered was obviously better than the one from Beckham.

Beckham Visits Devastated Tacloban

David Beckham flew down to Tacloban, a Philippine city, on Thursday as a part of relief efforts by the UNICEF.

Hundreds of victims who had been living in US- provided tents outside a stadium greeted Beckham with enthusiasm and awe.

BECKAHM DREAM

David Beckham’s dream to become the owner of a Major League Soccer team in Miami is edging nearer and nearer and it is even expected that it can become a reality in just 30 days. The MLS commissioner Don Garber said that the league expects to make an announcement of the situation in the next few days.

The former player of Manchester United, Beckham was given the chance to obtain and purchase an expansion team at a discount which is rumored to be at around $25 million. This was part of the deal he made back in 2007 when he joined the MLS team Los Angeles Galaxy.

BECKHAM STILL LOVED

David Beckham retired over 6 months ago as he played his last professional match with PSG as they played against Brest and he was made captain before receiving a standing ovation from fans and leaving the pitch after 80 minutes.

The English midfielder however wants to continue playing a role in football and wants to secure his MLS franchise before the New Year. He has a tight deadline to finalise his team in Miami as the MLS have put in place a deadline of December 31.

The MLS are offering the deal at a budget rate of £15m, which will then increase. So Beckham is keen to put together his proposal which includes sponsors, stadium and business plan.

Beckham said: “Hopefully there will be an announcement before the new year.

LIFE AFTER FOOTBALL

On the 18th of May, the man that the phrase is inspired on 'Bend it like Beckham' retired from football and recently spoke up about what his life has been without participating in the sport he was born to play.

The father-of-four said: 'I feel a pang of regret whenever I watch sport; the sense that I will never play a big match again. I guess those feelings are inevitable when you have just retired from sport.'

He also said that it’s a privilege being in the current situation he’s in: 'Whenever I go out people try to take pictures. I am not complaining, because it is a huge privilege to be famous and have a platform to do things that I believe in. But it can be surreal.'

FERGIE SLAMS BECKHAM

The former manager of Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson, has had a go at David Beckham in his new autobiography. Some parts of the book were released yesterday, while, the whole book will be released on 24th of October.

David Beckham remained a part of Manchester United for 12 years before making a move to Spain in 2003 after having a massive dispute with Sir Alex Ferguson.

After leaving United, Beckham’s career started to deteriorate. He spent a few years in Spain playing for Real Madrid and then, later on in America playing for Los Angeles Galaxy, but, he couldn’t perform up to his potential. He eventually announced his retirement earlier this year after a brief tenure at the French club Paris Saint-Germain.

In Ferguson’s book, there is a chapter about Beckham. That chapter consists of 11 pages and Ferguson has mentioned quite a few incidents related to Beckham in it.
According to the former Manchester United boss, towards the end of his career at Old Trafford, Beckham had started to behave weirdly. He had started to think that he was more important than the manager.

Ferguson added that Beckham would have become one of the greatest players ever at Manchester United if he had not gone after fame and publicity so much.

Talking to the reporters about his new book in a press conference yesterday, Ferguson said, “David’s marriage with Victoria was a turning point in his career. He didn’t remain the same player after that.”

“He had the ability to become one of the greats at United. But because of the desire that he had for stardom, he couldn’t do that.”

“If he had shown a little more maturity, he might have been playing for Manchester United even today.”

David Beckham hopes Rooney sticks with United

The saga surrounding Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has become an extremely thorny issue for both the club, the player as well as those associated with the two and now, former United favorite David Beckham has thrown his hat into the sag by stating that the England international is better off staying put at Old Trafford.

United’s Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea are monitoring the situation with the 27 year old who is valued by his club at £ 25 million and his future was thrown into further complication with new United chief executive officer Ed Woodward stating the club has no plans to discuss a contract extension with the player.

And David Beckham, who was a part of the famous Fergie’s Fledglings, the Class of ’92 that went from winning the FA Youth Cup to help United become the most dominant force English football has ever seen has stated that the player should not be looking for a move.

Beckham, who won six Premier League titles, two FA Cups and the 1999 UEFA Champions League during his stint at the club, fell fowl of the club’s manager Sir Alex Ferguson and had to leave the club under acrimonious circumstances. He went to Real Madrid where he won just one trophy before he went on to finish his career playing for Los Angeles Galaxy, AC Milan and Paris saint Germain.

Speaking to the media, fashion icon stated that he hopes Wayne Rooney stays at Manchester United because he is an extremely talented player and he sees him as a Manchester United player. David Beckham went on to add that the decision finally rests with him but as a Manchester United fan, he wants the best players to stay at the club and believes he will ultimately stay at Old Trafford

ANCELOTTI HAILS BECKHAM

The manager of Paris Saint-Germain, Carlo Ancelotti, has said that he will try hard to convince David Beckham to stay at PSG.

Beckham’s contract with PSG will get finished at the end of this season, but, the French club doesn’t want the star English midfielder to leave.

After leaving Los Angeles Galaxy in December last year, Beckham had been approached by a total of 11 clubs. But, the 37 years old veteran rejected all those offers and decided to sign for PSG at the start of this year.

Beckham has so far featured for PSG in 4 matches. He has played as a defensive midfielder in all those 4 matches.
When asked about the extension of Beckham’s contract, Ancelotti said, “We want him to stay here in the next season as well and we would love to give him a contract extension. But, it’s up to him to decide whether he wants to stay here or not. I would try to convince him.”

“David is a great player and no club would want him to leave. He has done a fine job in the matches that he has played for us so far.”

PSG has had a great season so far, but, in the last few games, their performance hasn’t been that good. They have managed to win just 1 out of the last 4 matches. However, they are still at the first position in the Ligue 1 points table with 58 points in 29 matches.

Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique de Marseille are not that far behind PSG in terms of points. Lyonnais and Marseille have 53 and 51 points respectively.

PSG will play its next match against Montpellier HSC. That match will be played at Parc Des Princes on Friday.

BECKS BACKS UNITED

David Beckham has said that his former club Manchester United has a good chance of winning the Premier League title this season.

Manchester United wasn’t able to win the Premier League in the last season. But, Sir Alex Ferguson’s team is looking good in the ongoing season. The Red Devils currently have a 9-point lead over the defending champions Manchester City with 13 matches to go.

David Beckham was a part of the Manchester United team between 1993 and 2003. When he was asked about the performance of his former club in this season, he said, “I think they are the best team in the Premier League and they are showing that on the field. The way they have played in the league so far, they deserve to win the title and they will be able to do it.”

Manchester United will face Real Madrid in a Champions League clash on the upcoming Wednesday. When Beckham was asked which team will be the favourite in that match, he said, “It’s a tough one. Both the teams are equally good. I have played for both the clubs in the past and I love both of them. So, it’s very hard for me to pick one team before the match.”

When asked if he would like to manage a team after announcing his retirement, the English midfielder said, “No, management is not something that I am looking forward to. Buying a club might be an option, but, I would not like to enter the field of management; that’s for sure.”

Beckham has recently signed for the French club Paris Saint Germain on a short term contract of 5 months. He had left his previous club Los Angeles Galaxy at the end of the MLS season in December last year.
