COTTEE BACKS BECKS

Former England football player, Tony Cottee, has said that David Beckham is not interested in signing for any English club except Manchester United. David Beckham was out there at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday to watch the FA Cup match between Manchester United and West Ham United. That match finished in the form of a draw. Tony Cottee was also there and he got the chance to have a chat with David Beckham while watching the match.

After the match, Cottee told the reporters, “I would have loved to see Beckham signing for West Ham United, but, I don’t think it’s going to be the case. I had a conversation with him and it didn’t seem that he wanted to sign for any English club. However, if he gets an offer from Manchester United, he might give it a thought.”

Beckham had started his professional career at Manchester United. He played for United for 10 years. He had joined United way back in 1993 when he was just 18 years old. He featured for the Red Devils in 265 matches and scored 62 goals out of which 15 goals were scored in the Champions League. In 2003, Beckham left Manchester United and joined Real Madrid. Madrid bought him after paying a huge transfer fee of 35 million Euros.

The former England captain had been playing for the MLS club Los Angeles Galaxy since the last 5 years, but, after the completion of his contract in December last year, he left Galaxy and is currently a free agent. He has been getting numerous lucrative offers from different parts of the world. Some English clubs have also shown interest in him. But, Beckham has made it clear that he is no hurry to join the new club. He will take his time and will take the decision after giving it a deep thought.
