Manchester United legend David Beckham took to social media to recall one of the best moments in his career.
The former Real Madrid and AC Milan star posted a picture on Instagram of the wonder goal he scored against Wimbledon 19 years ago, when he chipped the goalkeeper from the halfway line.
Beckham captioned the photo: “19 years ago today WOW … A goal that meant so much to me but what meant even more was Eric Cantona saying ” David what a goal ” then the BOSS saying you are not doing any interviews…Great words from one of the best @manchesterunited players in the history of the club and wise words from my father figure …. Happy days.”
That strike in 1999 was arguably the goal that put the Englishman on the map, and he went on to become a regular face in the United dressing room for years after that.
Beckham, renowned for being a dead-ball specialist, left the Red Devils for Real Madrid in 2003, before spells with La Galaxy in the MLS, AC Milan in Serie A, and Paris Saint-Germain in Ligue 1.
The midfielder scored 125 goals in 704 career games, and assisted a further 119 strikes for his teammates.
