Today David Beckham was unveiled at the AC Milan San Siro stadium marking the official loan which will bring the Englishman to Serie A for the very first time. The 33-year old, whom has previously played in strong European leagues like Spain and England, now hopes to get minutes at Serie A giants AC Milan.
Although Beckham’s loan formally begins December 29th the marketing folks at the club and kit sponsor Adidas obviously wanted the release of Becks in his new kit early as a pre-Christmas campaign.

Beckham is expected to travel with the Milan team to Dubai for a post Christmas training camp that includes one friendly game. The LA Galaxy player will be available for around ten Serie A matches and two rounds of the UEFA Cup before returning to the USA in time for the start of the Major League soccer season.
The Englishman’s first appearance on pitch is being billed as the first official match in 2009 when AC Milan play away to AS Roma on January 11th.
