thumbnail Hello,

The former England captain, who played alongside the new Madrid boss for three seasons in the Spanish capital, has paid tribute to his former team-mate

David Beckham claims Zinedine Zidane is "the best man for the job" after the former midfielder took over from Rafa Benitez at Real Madrid on Monday.

Beckham, who played alongside Zidane at Madrid for three seasons before the World Cup winner retired in 2006, claims his former team-mate is “someone with drive, passion and also doesn't accept failure on any level”.


Does it get any better than this ?? A man that has been the best at a game we all love , taking over of a club that myself and many more people love... Someone with drive , passion and also doesn't accept failure on any level.. Taking over from a manager that has huge experience and respect in the game , but taking on a position that he will relish ... THE BEST PERSON FOR THE JOB @realmadrid
