Milan includes Becks in its UEFA listFebruary 2nd, 2009 - 6:28 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb.2 (ANI): England football star David Beckham has been included on the updated UEFA Cup player list of Italian club A C Milan, fuelling speculation that he is likely to shift his loyalties from the United States-based L.A. Galaxy.
A report in The Independent quoted Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti as saying after last night’’s 3-0 defeat of Lazio: “We have included Beckham in the UEFA Cup list because he is doing very well.
“We want to take advantage of his form for the two games against Werder Bremen (on February 18 and 26),” he added.
The win in Rome saw Milan leapfrog Juventus into second place in Serie A, and narrow the gap on leaders Inter Milan to six points.
“It’’s a good moment for us. We are showing more confidence. We showed no fear and we look to the future with optimism. However, we are still behind Inter and although we still believe we can win the Scudetto, Inter still have the upper hand,” Ancelotti said. (ANI)
