And Man United is not different, with such the quality and importance they have.”

David Beckham pleads with Zinedine Zidane to overcome Liverpool

Real Madrid have won the elite competition in each of the past two seasons and Beckham has pleaded with Zizou to beat the Reds at any cost. Speaking on Sky Sports News, he said: “To have been successful as a player and now to be successful as the boss, the big boss, is incredible. I just want to wish Zizou, the boss, the president, the club good luck in the Champions League final. And please beat Liverpool, please!”

Obviously, Beckham’s affiliation with Real Madrid would automatically encourage him to support the club but the 43-year-old also holds a rivalry with Liverpool from his time with Manchester United. The Red Devils have dominated their proceedings over their north-west counterparts over the past couple of decades but a Champions League final triumph for the Reds would unquestionably generate talks of a power shift which many United fans would not want to hear.
