THEY will probably never admit it but Real Madrid fans are waking up this morning thinking that the shine has rather gone from their club. Like him or not Sr David Beckham gave the club a star status; his footballing skills probably left a lot to be desired but no-one can match his superstar status. Beckham's stay in Spain has not been a great success on or off the pitch.
His wife has been public enemy number one of the celebrity obsessed Spanish media for two reasons: a) she is married to David Beckham and b). she lived and worked in London and refused to give the media here the time of day. Also, Beckham never really got into Spain...as he couldn't speak the language he was never part and parcel of the Real Madrid/media set-up. He played for Madrid and gave the impression that he lived in England and had bacon and eggs for breakfast. But unlike many English players who leave Blighty he hasn't left with his tail between his legs.
He is going to a new club and he is being paid a small fortune for his services.
The little Englanders will applaud his move because he is going across the pond rather than the European continent. Adios, Becks, (that means goodbye, David!) and thanks.
As England manager Steve McLaren, Manchester United and now Real Madrid have discovered, David Beckham will always be the winner. The small army of floating fans who can actually tip the balance of profitability for a football club will now be heading for LA.
