The Talented Young ManagerDavid Beckham has grown to become the next Pep Guardiola, albeit on a somewhat lighter scale.
Although he started badly, the 38-year-old has now led Aston Villa to 7th in the table in January, even beating in-form sides like Manchester United, and Villa chairman Randy Lerner is probably thanking his lucky stars he didn't sack the former England captain after the Lions' poor performances last season that almost led to relegation.
Beckham's exploits with Aston Villa have now alerted Arsenal and Tottenham.
The North London rivals are both manager-less and doing poorly. Instead of building on their terrific 2nd-placed finish last season, Tottenham have instead fallen from grace, currently 6th in the table. Their Emirates Stadium counterparts are worst off - currently 11th in the table.
The London neighbors are expected to go head-to-head with each other in a 'competition' to bring Beckham back to his hometown in London.
