Becks must move to Milan to be able to lift FIFA World Cup like `66” heroesFebruary 18th, 2009 - 4:54 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb.18 (ANI): Arsenal legend Ian Wright has said that England midfielder David Beckham should seriously consider a move to the Italian club A C Milan if he wants to lift a FIFA World Cup like England’’s 1966 World Cup heroes.
Becks, who equalled Bobby Moore’’s 108-cap record in last week’’s friendly with Spain, has already revealed his desire to move full-time to Serie A. He is due to return to America next month, even as Milan has sent a team to that country to negotiate a deal with the MLS club L A Galaxy.
“Beckham is desperate to play for England at the World Cup that’’s good news for me. It means he’’s getting himself into a state of fitness and a mindset that he wants to win the tournament. I feel there is still something great left in Beckham and I can definitely picture him holding the World Cup,” The Sun quoted Wright, as saying.
Wright, who is now SunSport’’s leading football columnist, believes that Beckham has jeopardized his international career somewhat by playing for L.A. Galaxy.
“On his CV you”ve got Manchester United, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy and AC Milan. LA Galaxy? What’’s that about?
“It was a bad move and I”m just pleased he’’s realised now,” he added. Wright fears the ex-England skipper will not rank alongside the game’’s greatest players without lifting the biggest prize in football.
“He’’s got so much to offer still and his quality is starting to show that’’s why Milan want him to stay. Beckham has got everything. He knows it was a nightmare going to L A Galaxy. If the permanent switch to Milan doesn”t come off, he”ll look back in years to come and realize he made the biggest mistake of his life, he said. (ANI)
