Former Manchester United star David Beckham admitted to wishing he was sitting in the dugout along with his class of ’92 team-mates when Ryan Giggs was named interim manager at the club, Daily Star reveals.
Along with Giggs, Beckham saw his friends, Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, and Paul Scholes all named in the United coaching staff during the final few weeks after the departure of David Moyes.
When the midfielder was asked if he wanted to be where they were, he replied: “Of course I did, I was proud to see that image.
“It will be great to see if Scholesy, Butty and Phil can be involved.
“When I saw them all sat on the bench it was an amazing sight and it was one that made me emotional – I’ve spent my whole career with these lads.”
Even though the squad’s new manager Louis van Gaal has named Giggs as his assistant, the future of the other former Red Devils players are still yet to be decided.
Beckham has also praised the new management pairing and believes they can bring the club back to the top.
Beckham added: “He [Van Gaal] has got a history of working with young players, bringing players through academy systems at places like Ajax.
“That can only be great for Manchester United
“As a Manchester United fan and for Manchester United as a club, to have someone like this with his pedigree – he has worked with some of the biggest and best players in the world.”
