Vote: Is AC Milan right for David Beckham?
Italians brace themselves for huge marketing opportunity
This morning, Major League Soccerballer David Beckham confirmed that he will be heading to Italy in the new year, as the club will provide the ideal environment for
keeping his wife in boutiques maintaining his fitness. Goal.com reports:
“Milan here I come. I want to continue being a footballer,” said Beckham via his spokesman Simon Oliveira.
“Yes, it’s all true. I will arrive in Milan at the end of the year and I will stay until February.
“Only European football can take me back to certain levels and only Milan is the right way to refind competitiveness.”
Training with a top UEFA Cup side like Milan will undoubtedly keep Becks at a suitable level of fitness during the MLS closed season, with the idea being that he stays match fit for potential England selection. This seems smart enough, but if he wants to stay in contention for the national side, shouldn’t he train or play where Don Fabio can keep a closer eye on him? Even if he didn’t accept Harry Redknapp’s offer (it’s unlikely – have you ever been shopping at Gunwharf Quays?), he could perhaps train with Arsenal again (although admittedly, he failed to make the England last time he did this).
Is Beckham making the right choice with Milan, or would he be better off training, and maybe playing with, a club in the greatest league in the world? Join in the debate with a vote and comment below…
