Former Manchester United ace David Beckham has begged Zinedine Zidane to beat Liverpool in todays Champions League final.
Beckham came through the ranks at Manchester United as part of the famous class of ’92, before going on to become one of the most recognised faces in World football.
He wrote his name into Man Utd history in 1999 when he was an integral part of the treble winning team, before finally leaving his boyhood club for Real Madrid in 2003 after a supposed falling out with Sir Alex Ferguson.
He moved to the Bernabeu for a relatively modest £25 million, but would join Real’s team of Galactico’s which included the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Raul, and Ronaldo.
Zidane of course has made the succesful transition from player to manager, and has an opportunity to win an unprecedented third consecutuve Champions League trophy in tonights final against Liverpool.
Now Beckham has visited his former team-mate to pass on his best wishes, and has begged him to ensure his side beat Liverpool – Manchester United’s most bitter rivals:
“To have been successful as a player and now to be successful as the boss, the big boss, is incredible,” Beckham said to Zidane.
“I just want to wish Zizou, the boss, the president, the club good luck in the Champions League final.
“And please beat Liverpool, please!”
It has been a difficult season for Manchester United fans, who despite witnessing the best league campaign since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, have had to watch Manchester City scamper 19 points ahead of them on their way to the title.
United also suffered defeat in the FA Cup final at the hands of Chelsea last week, and watching Liverpool win the Champions League could be the final nail in the coffin of a disappointing campaign
