David Beckham will once again wear the colours of Manchester United almost 23 years after he signed for the club.
The former England captain is regarded as one of the finest players to have represented United. He was a product of the youth academy at Old Trafford. During his time at the club, he won numerous honours including the Champions League. Beckham will be part of the Great Britain XI that will take on former Real Madrid star Zinedine Zidane's Rest of the World XI. The two will be competing as part of the charity match for UNICEF.
Sir Alex Ferguson will also be part of the star cast that will witness this game. Ferguson and Beckham famously fell out with each other after the Champions League victory in 1999. The end for Beckham at United came in 2003 when he joined Real Madrid in a £ 25 million deal. Ferguson and Beckham have since exchanged a lot of words about this acrimonious departure, but their stance has softened in recent years. Speaking about the iconic time when he first signed his professional contract with United, Beckham claimed that it was a day that will live long in his memory.
The winger recently retired from professional football and he is looking to set up his own MLS franchise in Miami - and you can get double odds on it happening ot not if you use this code.
“I do. I was in one of the corporate boxes with the manager. We had a nice dinner then we went into his office.I remember having a blazer on with gold buttons and I'd been given a Man United tie at the time.It was actually my birthday, so we had a cake. There is a picture of me and the manager signing my papers,” said Beckham. During his ten years at United, Beckham made close to 400 apperances.
