David Beckham has refused to get involved in any sort of confrontation in his response to Sir Alex Ferguson‘s criticism of him written in his new autobiography.
Ferguson accused Beckham of having the mentality that he was bigger than the manager and blamed his relationship with Victoria as one of the reasons for their falling out.
But instead of hitting back, Beckham brushed off the criticism and simply stated that his feelings towards Ferguson haven’t changed as a consequence.
Speaking at a Facebook digital event for his book launch, he said: “I’m not going to sit here and be negative about the man who gave me the chance to play for the club of my dreams.
“He was one of the first numbers I was going to call to be manager but I’m not so sure any more. We looked at him as a father figure.
“I’m not going to sit here and be negative about a man who let me play for my boyhood team. Ferguson was one of the first people I was going to call to be manager for my new MLS side!”
Fair play Beckham. He’s no Mark Bosnich, that’s for sure.
In his chat with Dan Walker from the BBC, Beckham recollected memories from his days in Manchester. He admitted getting to play his childhood hero Bryan Robson was a dream and that Roy Keane was the most dedicated captain he has ever played under.
Beckham is now going to start his own MLS franchise based in Miami as he continues to contribute to the growth of football in America which he has done for the past six years. His career in football may be over but Beckham will still be involved in football for a long time yet.
