Zlatan Ibrahimovic Admits David Beckham Convinced Him Into MLS Move

Former Manchester United footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed David Beckham played a role in luring him to Major League Soccer. The Swede joined LA Galaxy this month after mutually terminating his United contract, and shortly after, he admitted that Beckham talked a lot about the California-based club during their time together at Paris Saint-Germain.

Speaking to Major League Soccer’s official website, he said: “I met David when I played in PSG and he talked a lot about Galaxy, the experience he had in America, he was all positive. He was like: “You should come over, go over, and try it out, play there” and he said everything is fantastic, it’s in progress, but to be part of it is something amazing and something he was proud of. So I’m just happy to get all these words because it makes it easier for you when you have to choose whatever you want to do for the next step.”


Beckham On United

Former Manchester United and England international David Beckham said that he still follows the Red Devils whenever he has some free time. He believes that Jose Mourinho has made a great job of steadying the ship and made them become competitive again. He said that the team has been performing averagely since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson and it is only after the arrival of the Portuguese manager that the club has improved.

David Beckham said that a club such as Manchester United should be challenging for the Premier League title every season and he believes that Jose Mourinho is the right man for the job. He said that the Portuguese manager is an experienced man and he knows what to do to improve the team.


David Beckham Expected Phil Neville To Enter Into Management Ahead Of Gary

Manchester United legend David Beckham has said that he always expected Phil Neville to be a better fit in coaching ahead of his elder sibling Gary. The brothers have moved in contrasting directions over the past 24 months, and Beckham is pleasantly surprised that Phil did not try into coaching at an earlier date.


Michael Owen: Kevin de Bruyne is better than Scholes, Giggs, and Beckham

Premier League legend Michael Owen has claimed that Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is a better all-round midfielder when compared with former Manchester United favourites Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and David Beckham. The Belgium international has shown exceptional vision through his passing over the course of the campaign, and this has pulled City clear at the top of the Premier League standings, while they are still in the running to win a quadruple.

In a report covered by The Mirror, Owen said: "De Bruyne, Scholes, Giggs, Beckham would be my order. Beckham was a pure striker of the ball. He obviously mastered a great whip on his dead balls, but he had that long range fizz as well.


Brand Beckham’s Net Worth Does Not Worry Me

Former Manchester United and LA Galaxy star David Beckham claims that he is not aware of his financial worth, even though it might very easily exceed £ 100 million when his wife’s business is also taken into account. ‘Brand Beckham’ has been a major name in the world of fashion and sports. David Beckham has been able to amass a huge amount of fortune while playing for Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, PSG, and LA Galaxy. He also has a huge amount of sponsorship deals lined up even now – a couple of years after his retirement.

The fortune of Beckham’s increased substantially when his wife’s clothing empire is also taken into account. The fashion empire alone is worth around £ 100 million and the 42-year-old claims that he did not have a clue about this information until now. Almost 2 decades ago, former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson frowned upon Beckham’s relationship with Victoria Beckham. This later led into a successful marriage, which has also been quite beneficial for both partners on a business scale. Beckham says that he will not be ready to put a price on the success that he has amassed in his career as a player and also as part of Brand Beckham.


Mourinho criticises Manchester United supporters

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho reportedly turned on the club's supporters, who were displeased with the substitution of Marcus Rashford against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon. The Red Devils were drawing 0-0 versus Spurs in the 70th minute of the game when Mourinho decided to replace Rashford with Anthony Martial.

The substitution did not go well with the club's faithful, who clearly felt that the Englishman had performed much better than Romelu Lukaku, who had no clear-cut chances to find the scoresheet. Ultimately, the manager's risk paid off after Lukaku and Martial combined to score the sole goal of the game, which the latter slotted in the 81st minute.


David Beckham in danger of losing Premier League record to Xherdan Shaqiri

Stoke City star Xherdan Shaqiri is apparently close to breaking a Premier League feat held by ex-Manchester United midfielder David Beckham.


The former England international shares the record for the most consecutive goals from outside of the box alongside Blackburn Rovers legend Tugay with eight.

Shaqiri is no stranger to weaving his magic from outside the box as he was done several times for Switzerland over the course of his international career. The Swiss managed a stellar long-range finish in Stoke City's 2-1 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United last weekend, and this took his long-range strike tally to six in the top-flight.


David Moyes reveals he wanted to bring Gareth Bale, Cesc Fabregas at Old Trafford

Former Manchester United David Moyes has revealed that he had planned moves for both Gareth Bale and Cesc Fabregas during his sole season in charge at Old Trafford.


The former Evertonian took up the United job in the summer of 2013 after Sir Alex Ferguson called time on his 26-year reign.

The 54-year-old, however, could not make much of his time at United after he was sacked in less than 10 months with the club placed seventh on the Premier League table. Speaking to The Mirror, the Scot admitted that he was at fault for the club's dismal performance, but things could have been different, had he been able to land his prime targets.


Don Garber Praises David Beckham as Ideal Person to Start a MLS Franchise

MLS commissioner Don Garber claims that David Beckham will be able to transform the league when his new franchise team finally comes into play.


Beckham is regarded as one of the iconic players to have represented in the Major League Soccer, which has been around for the last decade. The major boost to the popularity of the competition came when Beckham arrived on a free transfer from Real Madrid in the summer of 2005. Beckham was able to agree a whopping $ 250 million deal with the MLS for playing in this division. His presence boosted the profile of the league, and it also helped Beckham agree the potential option of starting a franchise at a subsidised cost.

YOUNGSTERS TIPPED FOR ENGLAND

Leicester City's summer signing Harry Maguire is hoping to get a call-up with the England national side through his performances in the upcoming campaign. The 24-year-old joined the Foxes from Hull City for £17m earlier in June after turning down the opportunity to join Tottenham Hotspur.

Maguire went through the previous season with Hull City almost unscathed, and this could not prevent the Tigers from beating the drop. The Englishman had the option of staying put for the final year of his Hull contract, but he decided to pursue a fresh challenge in the Premier League in order to encourage his chances of an England call-up.
