Beckham Reveals His Thoughts On Ole

Despite leaving Manchester United under controversial circumstances, David Beckham is still widely considered a club legend. In a recent interview, he revealed his thoughts on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and explained why it will never be difficult for him to watch the Red Devils.

After coming through the ranks at the English giants, Beckham went on to enjoy eight incredible years in the club’s senior side before a fallout with Sir Alex Ferguson led to his big Real Madrid move in 2003.

Despite his tenure at United ending the way it did, the Englishman was at the forefront of the club’s most dominating spells and is thus still revered by all sections of the Red Devils’ enormous fanbase.

Speaking in a recent interview, Beckham praised the work being done by former teammate Solskjaer, and insisted it will never be difficult for him to see United go through a tough run because he is a "real fan".

"I think he’s doing a good job," he told Sky Sports.

"The fact that he’s stepped in and stepped up, and that he continues to be positive about players, he’s got that from the boss (Sir Alex Ferguson).

"He would never criticise a player from his club and Ole has been exactly the same. He’s still learning but he will protect his players and protect Manchester United.

"All of the fans will be behind him because he’s a great person and because of what he’s done for Manchester United over the years.

"When that success is being had by Manchester City or Liverpool it’s always going to be talked about. There was always going to be a transition period, especially when Alex Ferguson stepped down.

"You had David Gill working at the club too and the players stopped playing, Giggsy (Ryan Giggs), Scholesy (Paul Scholes) and the Nevs (Gary and Phil Neville), they all stopped playing so there was always going to be a period when they weren’t as successful.

"Is it hard to watch them now? No, because I’m a real Manchester United fan and whatever the situation, I love watching them play.

"But let’s hope it doesn’t last for too much longer that we go without trophies because we are one of the biggest clubs in the world and not many clubs have that tradition."
