David Beckham returns AC Milan
After a successful return to Italian football, Beckam stated on italian TV interviews that he is happy to be back in Milan and looking forward to a Milan visit to Old Trafford this season. Victoria’s absense was noted but i’m sure she will be here for Milan fashion week 24 Feb – 3 Mar 2010.
David Beckham enjoyed a winning return to the AC Milan side as they outclassed Genoa 5-2 at the San Siro.
Watched by England coach Fabio Capello, Beckham impressed on the right side of a three-man attack in his first game since beginning a second loan spell.
After Ronaldinho had an early penalty saved, Genoa went ahead on 25 minutes but Milan were 2-1 up at half-time.
Leonardo’s side ran riot in the second half to keep the gap between them and leaders Inter Milan at eight points.
It could hardly have gone better for 34-year-old Beckham, who is spending a second spell at Milan from LA Galaxy in a bid to prove to Capello that he is worth a place in England’s squad for the World Cup.
He almost set up a goal inside five minutes, whipping in a cross from the right for Marco Borriello, who forced a superb save from Genoa keeper Marco Amelia.
And it was a trademark sweeping pass from Beckham which led to Milan’s second penalty of the game, allowing Ronaldinho to make up for his earlier weak effort with an emphatic spot-kick to make it 1-1.
