Beckham backing Manchester United


David Beckham will be filled with tension and trepidation Wednesday morning - from the comfort of his own couch as Manchester United take on Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League final.

"Without a doubt I will be watching nervously. We have got a day off from training, so I will be enjoying that and sit in front of the television and hopefully watching Man United beat Chelsea."

"It will be an electric atmosphere and having two English teams in the European Cup final for the first time makes it extra special. I just hope United go and do it now."

"I always think Man United deserve to win everything because I am a United fan," he said. "They have got a great team, with great players all the way through the team - not just their top players.

"There is an incredible team spirit which flows with the history of the club, and the fans deserve things like this because they support the team like no other around the world."

"What helps is when you have already got some silverware under your belt," Beckham said. "That really settles you going into a big game like this because the European Cup final is a huge game.

"They have got the confidence of winning the league. They have got the top spot which is a huge thing in England. They have got a big lift and I hope they go and take this as well."
