Beckham: ‘Milan for CL!’

David Beckham says he wants Milan to win the Champions League – without realising the Rossoneri aren’t in the competition.

The San Siro giants failed to qualify for Europe last season after finishing 10th in Serie A, but former Milan midfielder Beckham appeared unaware as he gave his verdict on the competition.

The former England international also discussed the players he is most excited by currently, including Juventus’ Alvaro Morata and Italy international Marco Verratti.

“Who I want to win the Champions League is a different story to who I think is going to win…or maybe it’s not actually,” he told Sport360.

“I’m going to have to say Man United, PSG and AC Milan…one of those three I’d like to see win but when you’re in the Champions League you realise how important this competition is in football.

“Who do I like to watch? I’m going to have to say Leo [Messi], I’m going to have to say Cristiano [Ronaldo]…I think [Alvaro] Morata is an exciting player.

“[Marco] Verratti for PSG, I played with him and he’s such a great and talented player. And, of course, Neymar.”
