England manager Fabio Capello announced several days ago that David Beckham would no longer be a part of the England team, and those who lack common sense have taken the news badly, including Beckham himself.
After England’s DIRE performance during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Fabio no longer wants to coach a bunch of pampered waste men and has seen sense. He now wants to focus on nurturing the next generation of players.
When asked by reporters (again) if Beckham would remain in the squad he replied,
David is a fantastic man and a fantastic player. My relationship with him is really good. I am 100% sure he will play the next friendly game if he is fit.Beckham”No. I am changing everything and we are going forward. David
“But we need young players and we need talented players and the players we used against Hungary are young and they have talent.”
The media harps on about how great Beckham was when he played for England and how great a captain he was. But if my memory serves me correctly the team still crashed out of tournaments and failed to bring home the World Cup while he was there and under his captaincy.
Anyway Beckham, who seems to spend most of his time these days nursing injuries, modelling underpants and sometimes plays for LA Galaxy (a stupid move motivated by financial gain) is 35 years old, not as fast as he once was, and is at an age where most players are preparing to hang up their boots.
Beckham at this point in his career cannot help the England squad move forward effectively on the pitch and needs to graciously step aside.
Give the next generation of England players the opportunity to grow and prove themselves.
