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.
