In spite of being criticised in Sir Alex Ferguson’s new autobiography, David Beckham has refused to be drawn into a war of words with the ex-Manchester United manager.

Sir Alex had revealed in his book that the reason he sold Beckham to Real Madrid in 2003 was because he thought Beckham had lost his focus.

But Beckham did not say anything against Sir Alex and instead said,  ”I’m not going to sit here and be negative about a man who gave me the chance to play for my boyhood team. That I’d always dreamt of playing for.”

“For me, like I said, he gave me the chance to do that. He believed in me, he believed in the rest of the young lads that came through with us.

“I wouldn’t be negative about Sir Alex Ferguson because he was the man that gave me the chance to live my dream.”

He even jokingly said that he would try and get Sir Alex Ferguson to be the manager of the new MLS franchise he plans to own.

“Funny thing was, obviously I’m involved in the MLS and I’m involved in bringing my own franchise into the league and actually he was one of the first numbers that I was going to call to be manager, but I’m not so sure anymore. I’m not sure he’d accept.”
