AC Milan coach praises Beckham for performanceJanuary 7th, 2009 - 7:25 pm ICT by ANI
Dubai, Jan.7 (ANI): A.C. Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti has praised England football star David Beckham for his performance on debut in a friendly victory over Hamburg last night.
Becks played the opening 45 minutes of the showpiece clash in Dubai, which the Italian giants won 4-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw.
The former England skipper, 33, put in a solid performance and Ancelotti said: He gave a very good impression. Dynamic quality and also he is an intelligent player. Obviously he is not at his maximum because for two months he didnt do anything. But he had a good week with us and now he is in a good condition and can make a good contribution to the team, The Sun quoted Ancelotti, as saying further. Beckham has joined the Serie A club on a short loan spell from LA Galaxy during the US close season to keep up his fitness and stay in contention for an England spot. Becks said: Im still part of the national team. When Im playing and when Im fit the manager has always said theres a chance hell pick me. Ive never played in the Italian league before so its going to be exciting. (ANI)
