David Beckham criticises Kaka’s Man City move

AC Milan loan star fails to see irony in comments

David Beckham and Kaka

“It’s not always about money. It’s about playing for the best team, playing with the best players in the world and winning trophies and being successful.”

Wise words from Beckham, who is currently enjoying a five-year £125m contract at a club that struggled to finish second from bottom in the MLS last season.

    That’s right David, that’s why you went to the US and signed for LA Galaxy right?
    One word: HYPOCRITE

    Oh get off David’s back. He is now realising that his move to the Galaxy (for purely footballing reasons – how DARE you suggest he went there for the money!) has backfired big time, as he is no longer front page news. This jumping on the anti-city bandwagon is merely his attempt to garner some column inches before he gets forgotten.

    With David its always been about the money. Although he would like to have people think otherwise, the deal to take him to LA was mind blowing.

    They accuse us of not living in the real world? this man hangs around with Tom Cruise and buys 88 grand handbags hahahaha

    Beckham the most over rated player ever to play fotball. he can cross a ball and he can er…..cross a ball and he can er….oh yeah cross a ball as well

    In all honesty, the most objectionable part of the interview this quote was taken from, was the part where this overhyped, attention-seeking waste of skin stated that ‘we all love him here’ – WHAT???? You’ve only been with the team a couple of weeks you fake, insincere idiot.

    If Kaka moves to Man City then, in a year or two, he may well find himself in the best team that money can buy!

    OF course “the best club the money can buy”, and also the referies and the fans and well the world of football its self.
    words of irony here

    LOL to all of you..Beckham is 33 for God sake! He is going to be 34 this May..and he is on the edge of the retirement..therefore he is ALLOWED to think about money when he was making his move to US. And he was already 32 years old back then when he made the move, NOT 26 YEARS OLD like Kaka! If Kaka is 30 or 33 years old now..then it is OK for him to go to City and talking about developing a LOW, 3rd rate/tier team to be one of the competitive in the League. And that will take at least 2 or 3 years to be true. If Kaka goes now..he WILL WON NOTHING in the next 3 years, and by the time he is 30 then, it is probably too late for him to be the World’s No.1 again! Heck..even Ronaldinho who is 30 now is considered as a has been while Zidane had won it at 34!

    Ronaldinho is 28

    Beckham only moved to Milan so Milan could sell the stock of home shirts that no one was buying. Beckham hasn’t had any ambition since he left Man Utd, with Posh leading him round the world on her mission to get someone to recognise her….

    Any pro footballer who listens to his missus’ advice when choosing a club to play for wants putting down….

    This coming from a man who sold out to go to the MLS and play for LA Galaxy not that i blame him of coarse, and as for David Beckham this particular phraise comes to mind and that is “people in glass houses should not throw stones”.

    [...] in the comfort of not having to make such a huge decision, both Fernando Torres and David Beckham expressed their doubts about the move this week, and in many ways, they are right. Living up to [...]
