I miss the club every day, admits Becks…
David Beckham has admitted that returning to Manchester United with AC Milan will be ‘incredible’.
Beckham returns to his boyhood club for the first time since his departure to Real Madrid in 2003, when the Rossoneri travel to the Theatre of Dreams in the Champions League.
The former England captain cannot wait for the fixture, admitting he misses the club every single day.
“It’s such a special occasion – to be there in front of the fans, manager and friends. It’s going to be incredible,” he said as he began his second spell on loan with Milan.
“I don’t know whether I’ll be happy if we lose because I’d like to progress further in the competition and when you come up against a club that you support and a club that you spent so many great years at and [you’ve] still got so many friends at the club, those things are always difficult.
“But it’s a nice problem to have because I’ve never returned to Old Trafford as a player. In seven years I miss it every day.
“I miss being a Manchester United player, I miss the club, I miss the fans and friends at the club. It’s always going to be a special place in my heart.
“To return as an AC Milan player makes it extra special.
“That’s the big thing for me, to return with a team like this and a club like this. It’s got so much history, which is the same with Manchester United.”
