Becks: Best Fans In The World Should Be Happy

David Beckham, who left his boyhood team Manchester United for Real Madrid when he was 28-years-old, has today expressed his happiness over Wayne Rooney’s decision to stay at the club.

Becks has gone on to play for AC Milan and LA Galaxy and recently returned to Old Trafford to receive a battering in the Champions League. However, he has repeatedly reiterated his regret at leaving United when he did.

“I’ve never said that I’d never move away from Manchester, and I’ve never said that I’d end my career there,” Beckham said a fortnight before signing for Real Madrid. Clearly that attitude is one that came with the ego of youth and therefore he probably finds it easy to relate to Rooney’s current state of mind.

However, the former United man has insisted that the fans should be happy that Rooney still plays for the club.

“Wayne Rooney is a great talent wherever he plays – he’s always going to be a great player,” said Beckham. “But, as a Manchester United fan myself, the Manchester United supporters should be happy and it can be put to bed. I’m not surprised he’s staying at Manchester United because they’re the biggest club in the world. And he’s got the best manager that will look after him at all times. They’re the best fans in the world so at the end of the day it’s an easy decision.”

    How can you not like this guy. Becks is such a legend, he doesnt have to always speak good about the club but he does cos he loves United.

    Words purely words little clique between “professionals”.
    I think as a United fan they will spill out to you me whatever they want you to gullably suck in.
    Although great respect to Beckham for putting on the green and gold scarf after the milan game last term. ? False or what!

    If it’s an easy decision why did it get so messy? Ugh. Lets not forget that the contract negotiations with Becks also got ugly until he signed in 2002. And he was sold a year later. Hmmm…

    I love Becks, but fergie knew his time was up. I hate Rooney, even if he scores one hundred goals this season it won’t matter. He disrespected the club and especially fergie and the team. No ambition?!! I would break his leg if i met him. Cunt! I hope he is sold for good money end of the season. Chicharito will have a season under his belt and Macheda a year older. Use the money to get decent central midfielders and GK.
