Former Man U team-mate warns Becks of rough ride ahead of dream Old Trafford clash

Posted By: Staff

London, Feb 13(ANI): AC Milan midfielder David Beckham has been warned by former Manchester United team-mate Teddy Sheringham that his dream clash at the Old Trafford will be a rough ride.

Sheringham reckons that United will unveil anti-Beckham tactics against their former hero in Tuesday's Champions League quarterfinal first-leg tie with Milan.

"Alex Ferguson knows everything about him. I'm sure he will make sure Patrice Evra plays right against him," The Sun quoted Sheringham, as saying.

"Beckham is still a fantastic crosser of a ball and United will be out to deal with him," he added.

Sheringham also believes that Beckham will go to this summer's World Cup finals, even if he fails to regain his regular starting role with the Italian giants.

"I don't think Fabio Capello will think of starting Beckham in the finals, so as long as he plays some games for AC I think he'll be OK," he said.

Beckham had earlier said that he was looking forward to be playing against the club where he won six Premier League titles, two FA Cups and one Champions League trophy in a glorious ten-year period.

"The thing is with Manchester United and AC Milan, they have terrific respect for each other. That's between the managers, the players, the fans and the clubs. Emotionally, it is going to be very difficult after not playing there for seven years, but it is something I can't wait for now. To be back in that stadium will be fantastic," Beckham had said.
