Serious Becks given 89 minutes

David Beckham made his AC Milan debut in a 2-2 draw with Roma yesterday. The ex-England skipper was handed a surprise start on the right of a three-man midfield and – even more surprisingly – was allowed to stay there for 89 minutes.

Coach Carlo Ancelotti sang Beckham’s praises after the match. He said: “I decided to start with Beckham because he had demonstrated over the last few days that he was intelligent, serious and committed. This was his reward for settling in so quickly. I will never tire of pointing out that he is an exemplary professional who works hard.”

    Glad to see David Beckham is back in European football. Hope he’ll stay with AC Milan.
