Beckham: City won't win league

2011-11-28 15:47

Jakarta - David Beckham believes big-spending Manchester City have no chance of winning the Premier League this season despite being five points clear after 13 games.

The 36-year-old midfielder shrugged off their strong start and status as the world's richest club by saying his former team Manchester United, in second, had the experience that would count.

"I don't think Manchester City have a chance. This season they have got a good team and have some good players, but Manchester United have more experience and know how to win a championship," Beckham told reporters in Jakarta, where his LA Galaxy team will play a local side as part of an Asian tour.

City have been dominant in the English league so far this season and beat United 6-1 away in a derby last month, but were humbled themselves in the Champions League with a loss at Napoli last week.

Beckham, who has been linked with a move to Paris St Germain among others if he does not renew his Galaxy contract which soon expires, said he needed to be fit and playing in form to get a "very special" berth on the Great Britain team in next year's London Olympics.

"I have a big decision to make," he would only say on Monday when asked about his future.

    What a load of crap, did he not watch the game when his beloved scum utd were humiliated by City, I know Liverpool made them look a little ordinary but then thats Liverpool not the scum utd, I can promise unless they do a huge spend in january the scum will be lucky to get into Europe next year never mind win the league, they have one class player in Rooney whom they have to play in midfield now because their midfield is so rubbish, apart from Vidic who have they got in defence ? answer NOBODY, even their luck ran out on Saturday, I'm sure Beckham could still get a game there tahts how poor they are.

    Beckham was there when united overcame many opticals coming from behind to win cup glory. If there is one person that knows what united is capable of achieving it is non other than Beckham.
