Former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham wears famous No.7 shirt again

Manchester United have had a succession of subpar No.7s in recent years, with Angel di Maria, Antonio Valencia and Michael Owen all disappointing in the famous shirt.

Before them, the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best, Bryan Robson and Eric Cantona had etched themselves into Man United folklore with 7 on their backs.

Perhaps the most famous of all was David Beckham, who graduated from the class of ’92 before making the shirt his own at Old Trafford.

Beckham left United in 2003 and spent time at Real Madrid, LA Galaxy, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain before retiring in 2013 but it is clear that he still has a strong affinity with his boyhood club and he couldn’t resist putting on the shirt once again:

Nice little gift with love from Manchester … New Adidas kits for me and the kids… @manchesterunited

Of course, Beckham makes anything look good but the new Adidas home kit suits him well.

United are yet to announce who will be the club’s new No.7 next term, with a number of candidates to consider. Memphis Depay has a strong shout, as does Pedro if he ends up completing a move to Old Trafford.
