Alex Ferguson: My Autobiography
Ferguson on... Beckham
He added to MUTV: He’s an icon. I think his status for young people is fantastic, he's an inspiration to them. But I’m a football man and I want to see players play for Manchester United for a long time, and David could have done that. He could’ve joined Giggs and Scholes as one of the greatest players of all time at United but he chose a different way and I can’t argue with how it’s all turned out for him. But if he had asked me about going from Real Madrid to LA Galaxy I’d have torn the head of him. The remarkable thing is he started missing it big time. He then goes to AC Milan and plays in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, he goes to PSG and plays in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
