I thought that was Xavi or Iniesta talking about Scholes? Saying best they'd played against or that he'd be one of the first on the team sheet if he played at Barca.
Not sure i agree with this bolloxs to be fair .. How can Reyes replace him when he played left and Beckham played either in the middle or on the right?? And i think they played in the same team together ..
At Milan he went for 2 months on loan and played 18 games in the MLS off season, 2nd time he did it the following season and played 11 games before injuring himself and putting him out of the World Cup and start of the MLS. Mark Hately was at Milan for 3 chuffing seasons ... and if thats the case, to play half the number of games as Mark Hately with his 3 seasons, in what was it, 4 months is impressive.
For the record, both players are completely different so to be comparing how they play and whether they are world class or not is non sensical. Both were. Zidane operated in the middle with such elegance and grace you don't see in many modern footballers now .. Beckham had everything you'd want to instill in a young player starting out, work ethic and attitude to just keep going. Plus his right boot was f*cking magical.
Both are amazing players. Love watching Zidane and love Becks in general
