Beckham Expects Van Gaal To Be Success

Manchester United icon David Beckham has stated that he expects new manager Louis van Gaal to be a success at the club. The Dutchman was named as the replacement for David Moyes after weeks of negotiation. The former Bayern Munich and Barcelona manager is currently in charge of the Dutch national team, but he has announced his decision to step down from the role after the World Cup 2014. He is one of the top managers in world football after having won several trophies including the Champions League.

Beckham, who was critical of United’s decision to sack David Moyes after just 10 months in charge, said that he expects van Gaal to bring stability back to the club. He also says that it would not be surprising if United started challenging for titles once again from next season. The club finished in a disappointing seventh place and they will be without any form of European football for the first time in more than two decades. Beckham recently announced his decision to be part of the MLS. He will be starting a new franchise in the MLS, but the work has been hit by several groups opposing his decision to start a stadium in the Port of Miami.

“He has got a history of working with young players, bringing players through academy systems at places like Ajax. That can only be great for Manchester United. As a Manchester United fan and for Manchester United as a club, to have someone like this with his pedigree – he has worked with some of the biggest and best players in the world,” said Beckham.

After becoming the manager, Louis van Gaal stated that he is confident that the club can start challenging for the Premier league title in his first season at the club.

SPURS MISS BALE

Real Madrid broke the bank when last year when they secured the services of Gareth Bale as he arrived from Tottenham with a price tag of €91 million. The Welshman was signed by Madrid as a way for them to response to Barcelona as they already had signed Neymar a few weeks previously.
The price tag lifted the eyebrows of many fans and even coaches around the world as they were concerned as to whether or not; the enormous price tag was actually worth it.

Bale took his time adapting and settling into Spain and the play style of Real Madrid but slowly he has been making his presence felt and this was evidenced most recently by his amazing solo run as he ran past Bartra and slipped the ball past Pinto as he scored the winning goal for Real Madrid which allowed them on securing the Copa del Rey trophy.
When the match concluded, the head coach of Tottenham Tim Sherwood stated that Real Madrid signed Bale on a bargain price.

“His fee looks cheap now” he told the belgie rusland odds website. “If he is going to deliver them the European Cup which it looks like he might then that looks good business for Madrid. To have Cristiano Ronaldo and Bale he’s a freak of nature what you see there. When he was running on the track he’d run past three old ladies eating a hamburger and come back on the pitch, and still be fastest to the ball. Look at his goal, he was playing against Barcelona, he’s had a great season”

“Give me Gareth Bale and I think we might have been realistic challengers for the top four this season. You saw what Gareth did eight winning goals last season out of 21 goals and nine assists. If you put them on to our season it would have a different complexion. Speculation was rife at the time nearly as long as the speculation surrounding me” Sherwood announced.

Unfortunately for Sherwood, his squad is out of the Europa League qualification spots as they are behind a few points behind.

England dealt Townsend blow

England boss Roy Hodgson has been handed a blow ahead of this summer’s World Cup following the news that Tottenham winger Andros Townsend has been ruled out of the tournament with an ankle injury. The Spurs star picked up the injury after coming on against Stoke in the second half, with further scans confirming the 22-year old now faces up to 10 weeks on the sidelines with the injury.

The winger burst onto the international scene earlier this season with a sensational goal-scoring performance in the 4-1 victory against Montenegro, featuring in the side that booked their place in Brazil with a 2-0 victory over Brazil. Despite his limited top-flight experience, Townsend’s early-season form and performances for England had led some to label the winger as a certainty to make Roy Hodgson’s 23-man squad.

Despite spending much of his time with Spurs out on loan, Townsend took advantage of Gareth Bale’s departure at the beginning of the season to cement himself as part of Andre Villas-Boas’ plans. After initially starring in the Spurs first team this season, injury and a loss of form saw Townsend slip down the pecking order under Tim Sherwood.

While his lack of playing time had damaged his hopes of making this summer’s tournament, the Spurs winger’s injury has now appeared to have scuppered his World Cup hopes, robbing Hodgson of a player capable of bringing something different to his squad this summer.

“Following further examination and consultation, Andros Townsend is to undergo surgery on his left ankle after damaging ligaments during our fixture against Stoke City last Saturday. The injury is likely to sideline the young winger for up to 10 weeks,” said a club statement.

Roy Hodgson will name his provisional England World Cup squad on 12 May, with Townsend now expected to miss out due to injury. With Theo Walcott and Jay Rodriguez already ruled out of this summer’s World Cup with their respective injuries, Hodgson’s options on the wing are somewhat limited.

The likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Raheem Sterling, James Milner and Adam Lallana are all capable of playing on the wing for England in this summer’s tournament, but losing natural wide men like Walcott and Townsend will have given Hodgson some headaches ahead of his squad unveiling.

While Aaron Lennon and Adam Johnson have both fallen out of favour with the England manager over the past 12 months, both wingers have caught the eye for their club sides since the turn of the year and could have played their way into Hodgson’s consideration following the injury to Townsend and Walcott, according to fans of bet365.com/news/en/betting/football.

Hodgson has kept his cards close to his chest regarding his 23-man squad in the run up to the May 12th unveiling, but it’s still thought there are places up for grabs in the mind of the England boss. With two games left of this Premier League season, time is running out for those World Cup hopefuls to earn their place on the plane to Brazil in June.

REMOVE THE MLS CAP

Former England international David Beckham has said that he is in favour of removing the salary cap, which is currently in place in the MLS.

According to the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star, the league is unable to attract a lot of big names because of the salary cap. According to the rules, no team is allowed to have wage bill of more than $ 3.1 million. However, they can still bring in three players per team with no limits. This was primarily called as the ‘Beckham rule’ as it helped bring the international superstar to LA Galaxy.

He is believed to have earned $ 32 million per year for five years before eventually retiring last summer. Beckham also had the option to start a new MLS franchise at a discounted price. This is a clause that he recently executed after starting a new franchise in Miami. Apart from announcing the plans for a new 25,000 seater stadium, which will be built out of his own pocket, Beckham has also been announcing grand plans to make the club as one of the best in the MLS.

Due to his incredible connections big game, it is expected that several big stars will be coming to the club, although the 38-year-old refused to reveal their names.

“We’re restricted with some of the players that you can pay over the wage cap. The salary cap removal is what we’ll work for. Obviously, that’s one of the things that stops a lot of players coming over here, where I think the league and certain cities in this country will attract big-name players. I’m not going to mention any players because it’s disrespectful to the players and the teams. But we want to bring big players. We have to,” said Beckham to BeIN Sports.
