What a difference 24 hours makes after briefly discussing on World Soccer Daily the possibility of David Beckham leaving the Galaxy, (for training with AC Milan making his England position more secure) Becks is buying plane tickets for the Northern Italian fashion capital.
Okay maybe not until January but we all get the picture, Mr Billy Big Boots will be modeling underwear to Italians instead of East LA and from my position he should have done this much sooner as the American experiment wasn’t going to reach the heights first anticipated those many months ago.
Those who known both Beckham and Italy expect him to win the crowd while at Milan the list includes current England manager Fabio Capello, and former England midfielder and Man United teammate Paul Ince. Perhaps Ince could offer some words of wisdom on getting around Milan he did play for Inter.
Brand Beckham Lives
AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani was quoted in Italian papers saying, “Football today is not just about tactics and technical abilities. It’s about full stadiums and sponsors. No-one can beat the 65,000 fans we had on Sunday.”
Correct Mr Galliani with Kaka, Ronaldinho and Beckham in uniform I’m sure you’ll keep your current sponsors very happy because superstars like this sell merchandise but lets face facts Rossoneri readers even though he is still a top player your new signing isn’t coming to win games. Beckham is at the end of a career so being in Milan will be a mutual benefit selling Brand Beckham back to Europe, a brand that was on the ropes in America, and in the process selling brand Rossonero to a wider English-speaking audience.
One last note, Galliani claims It’s not just a shop window deal as he will be available to Carlo Ancelotti for Serie A and the UEFA Cup but we all know the truth.
