Revenge not on Becks’ mind

AC Milan loanee David Beckham has played down suggestions that he will be looking for revenge when his current club meet Manchester United in the Champions League.

The 34-year-old England international left The Red Devils in the summer of 2003 following a high-profile falling-out with manager Sir Alex Ferguson, but Beckham insists that that has been long forgotten.

He told reporters:"Sir Alex will always be a father figure to me. He always has been and he always will be.

"No matter what has been said in the past, whether good or bad, I only remember the good times.

"He was the man who gave me my chance to play for club I had always dreamed of playing for.

"For me they were only good times. Sir Alex is respected throughout football all around the world.

"Clubs move forwards and it was my time to leave Manchester United in 2003 and I moved on.

"I definitely hold nothing against the manager, he's an incredible man."

On leaving United Beckham joined Real Madrid, before heading to the USA to link up with LA Galaxy in the summer of 2007.
