David Beckham pleads with Zinedine Zidane to overcome Liverpool

Former Manchester United and Real Madrid star David Beckham has begged Zinedine Zidane to overcome Liverpool in this weekend’s Champions League final. 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.

Sergio Romero refutes Manchester United exit talk

Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero has stressed that he won’t be leaving the club during the summer transfer window. The Argentine joined the Mancunian giants from Sampdoria in the summer of 2015 and he has since played second fiddle to David de Gea for the shot-stopper’s position.

Despite this, Romero is said to have no issues regarding his situation and he is committed to the club for the remainder of his contract signed last year. He told Tyc Sports: “I'm staying at Manchester United for now. [United manager] Mourinho worked hard for my renewal until 2022. I can't leave him now. If United wants to sell me, if they have an offer that it's useful for the club, they will sell me. But I don't think that would happen”.

David Beckham Admits His Sons Have Decided Against Pursuing Footballing Careers

Former Manchester United star David Beckham has admitted that it is ‘heartbreaking’ after witnessing his sons Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz decided against pursuing football as a profession. As such, his hopes are now completely hinged on his young daughter Harper, who is determined to make a living out of the beautiful game.

Beckham has watched all his three sons play football during the early stages and Brooklyn, in particular, had spent time in the Arsenal academy. However, the trio don’t seem interested in the sport anymore and Beckham’s hopes are now pinned on daughter Harper, who is the young member of the family at the age of six.

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.
