Following Jose Mourinho’s appointment as Manchester United manager, David Beckham has talked about his happiness, and says he hopes to be at the first game of the season.

I think it is perfect. Bringing him back to the Premier League needed to happen. It’s not the same without him. I can’t wait to see him. I only hope I can go to the first game.

A few months ago, before his appointment, Beckham revealed he hoped Mourinho returned to the Premier League.

Jose leaving Chelsea, who would have expected that after the season they had last year? But it doesn’t make him a bad manager, he’s still one of the best managers, and I hope he comes back to the Premier League as soon as possible. The Premier League is the Premier League for the great players we bring in, the great teams, the money, the fans and the great characters that we have as managers. You want to see managers like that in the game.

Who we have at United now is an experienced manager with a great reputation in the game and sometimes it takes time. It’s not easy being manager at a club like Manchester United. But, at the end of the day, we have to look at results, we have to look at the way that we play, we have to listen to the fans, the people who really matter at the club.
