Beckham To Become Manager?
Sky Sports Understand That David Beckham Has Interviews With Four Clubs To Become Manager
In a summer where controversy in English football has hit an all-time high following Greg Dyke's escape from a jail sentence, heads have turned once again as David Beckham prepares to enter the world of management. The former Manchester United and English player recently resigned from his role as Ambassador of the English FA, following the revelation of the heart-breaking conspiracy which left English football in a state of turmoil, and is now expected to make his name as a manager in the coming days.
The formed midfielder made his intention of becoming a football manager clears last week and has reportedly earned himself interviews with four clubs in the lower leagues of English football. These clubs are Cambridge United, Stockport County, Chester and York City. In order to have enough time to prepare for the upcoming season, the interviews will take place over the course of the next two weeks to allow David Beckham enough time to work with his new squad.
It is expected that wage demands should not be an issue for the knighted football legend, who earns more than enough money from his own range of aftershave and clothing, not to mention his illustrious modelling career. This is a major boost for clubs in poor financial positions who may have not normally have been able to meet the demands of a high-profile manager. While no major clubs are willing to make a gamble on a manager with little experience, former team-mate Gary Neville feels that a spell in the lower leagues would provide David Beckham with vital experience.
Gary Neville: "David (Beckham) is a very humble man and I know that wherever he ends up, he will succeed. Many people may be surprised that David has accepted invitations to interviews with lower clubs but I feel that time in the lower leagues would only benefit him as a manager. There is a huge difference between working with money and quality players and working with no money and weaker players. If David can perform well with a weak side, he can perform with a strong side."
