Speaking ahead of AC Milan’s UEFA Champions League tie with Manchester United, David Beckham has promised he won’t be jumping for joy inside Old Trafford – even if the Rossoneri are victorious.
“Sometimes emotion can get the better of you when you score” he told Inside United, “but I do not think I would celebrate. I respect the supporters and the club.”
Milan will travel to The Theatre Of Dreams for the second leg of their round of 16 match with United on 10th March and Beckham admitted how difficult he found leaving the club.
"United was the club I always wanted to play for and I loved every minute of my time there. The first few years (after leaving) were hard and there were a lot of things I missed.”
Finally, Beckham paid homage to the United fans he left behind, revealing they would always have a place in his heart.
"The relationship I have with the fans is still important to me. I went through some difficult times, but they never stopped supporting me. I would not have got through everything without them. To me they are the best fans in the world and the support they gave me week in, week out was incredible. Nothing will ever better that."
