Beckham Denies Managerial Rumours
David Beckham Rebuffed Rumours Linking Him To Managerial Positions In England
Former England and Manchester United midfielder David Beckham was the subject of rumours linking him to interviews with several English clubs, such as Cambridge United, Chester, Stockport County and York City. However, the former England skipper dismissed all rumours linking him to any job in England in the near future. While David Beckham confirmed that he did indeed receive interview offers from several clubs, he turned them down to spend more time with his family.
David Beckham: "I've received offers from some chairmen inviting me to interviews over the past few weeks, but I've never even considered accepting them. After the controversy in the FA and the aftermath of what happened, I'm not mentally prepared to step back out in to the football world. The best thing for me to do right now is to get away from football for a few months and spend some time with my family. I've missed spending quality time with them.
I do appreciate the interest in my services and I am very grateful to the chairmen who offered me the opportunities to begin my managerial career and had I received these offers a couple of months ago, I would have probably taken it. Unfortunately, my head isn't where it should be right now and I cannot accept these generous offers. I do wish the clubs who offered me interviews the best of luck in finding the right men to lead them and I hope they perform well during the upcoming season.
I'm looking forward to the upcoming season, as a supporter. I'll be gunning for my former teams to perform well in their leagues. AC Milan will find it tough this year with the numerous changes in the squad but with the arrival of Fernando Torres on loan, I think they have found a man who has an abundance of ability in his locker, he just needs to find the key. Real Madrid have moved from strength-to-strength. Dí Maria has left for Manchester United but they brought in two top talents in Toni Kroos and James Rodríguez to replace him. I fully expect them to win the league this season. As for Dí Maria's new team, Manchester United, an interesting season awaits them. Van Gaal is a top, top manager who I have a lot of respect for and I hope that he can lead the team back in to the Champions League."
