Global Sports : Beckham: Gerrard Will Be An Idol

posted in: News | 0

David Beckham believes Steven Gerrard will be huge addition to LA Galaxy and Major League Soccer.
Gerrard is set to join up with Beckham’s former MLS side LA Galaxy this summer, and the former Manchester United midfielder is tipping the current Liverpool skipper to light up the league.
“Stevie is going to do great, he is without doubt one of the best midfielders that I have ever played with and I’ve been lucky enough to play with quite a few through the years,” explained Beckham exclusively to Sky Sports.
“He is going to take professionalism, drive and players are going to look up to him.”
The two midfielders played together in the 2006 World Cup in Germany, when England reached the quarter-finals before they were eliminated by Portugal on penalties.
Beckham also thinks another former England team-mate, Frank Lampard, will shine in the MLS, which starts on March 6, exclusively on Sky Sports.
“Frank is one of the best goal scorers in Premier League history, when you have got a player like that going into a league like the MLS people take note,” Beckham said.
“Bringing Frank to New York and taking Stevie to LA are big moments.”
