'HE SHOWED ME HOW GOOD HE WAS'
David Beckham finally spoke about one of the most iconic, if infamous, moments of his career at a charity event on Friday night. Following a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup, Macnhester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was seething, and when England's former captain swore out loud all hell broke loose. "You know the boss, on European nights, Champions League nights, would always come onto the pitch and start taking penalties and free kicks and telling all of us how great he was when he played, the goals he scored and things like that," Beckham said to rounds of laughter. "But the time when I really got to find out how great he was, was after a game against Arsenal where I think I'd made a couple of mistakes. He came into the dressing room, we had a few words, he started to walk over toward me and he kicked a pile of clothes on the floor and out came this boot and hit me. And that's when I realised actually how actually accurate he really was." —Agencies
