“He’s been so successful because he’s passionate about Manchester United and he’s a born winner,” said Beckham. “He knows how to win games, how to handle pressure and how to look after his team and his players. He was like a father figure to me. I was scared to go and knock on his door because of who he is but he always made me feel as if I was part of a family and that’s how you feel when you’re at Manchester United.”
