David Beckham was dropped from Milan’s starting line-up at Bologna on Sunday but he is almost certain to be back against United as loanee Amantino Mancini is ineligible for the Champions League while Pato is still not fit.

And if he gets the nod he’ll keep his emotions at bay in the event he manages to put one past Edwin van der Sar.

‘Sometimes emotion can get the better of you when you score but I do not think I would celebrate,’ he told Inside United.

‘I respect the supporters and the club. The relationship I have with the fans is still important to me.

‘I went through some difficult times but they never stopped supporting me. I would not have got through everything without them. To me they are the best fans in the world and the support they gave me week in, week out was incredible. Nothing will ever better that.”


Well said David. We’re very much looking forward to seeing you at Old Trafford again. Hopefully he won’t have reason to celebrate anyway.
