Milan: Thank you Beckham
By Football Italia staff

Milan have paid tribute to David Beckham, after their former midfielder announced his retirement from the game this afternoon.

The England international played nearly 30 times for the Rossoneri between 2009 and 2010, but today confirmed he would end his career this summer.

And the San Siro side have congratulated the 38-year-old, thanking him for his years of service.

A statement on the club's official website read: “One of Milan’s most famous fans is hanging up his boots. David Beckham, who spent 2 half seasons with the red and black of Milan, will play no more.

“An impeccable professional, he made his debut for the Rossoneri in January 2009 against Roma is a match that ended 2-2. He left the club in March 2010 with an Achilles tendon problem after the “match against Chievo.

“Always ready to sacrifice himself for the cause, Beckham on that evening got off the pitch as quick as he could to allow Milan to push forward and for Clarence Seedorf to score the game’s only goal.

“His arrival at the club may have been greeted with some scepticism but his performances as a player quickly won over the non-believers.

“Two goals against Genoa and Bologna as well as 29 appearances with AC Milan helped the team towards two Champions League qualifications.

“Thank you and good luck from all the fans and everyone at the club to David Beckham.”

Could have been great, but he stopped being a footballer once he concentrated more on camera.

Wrong, he never stopped being one, always gave his best on the field.The only mistake he made was going to the states right after Real Madrid.He should have gone to Milan for another 2-3 years then go the states.

But what he did there for football is amazing.His fame is what got football to be more popular there, and made other star players move there.His fame is what made clubs there invest more in youth and so on.

Yeah his fame is so great, one of the most famous footballer, but is not the football made him so famous but his activities outside the football. That was the reason SAF sent him out of old trafford. Imo if he concentrated on football only he might become one of the greatest. Still like able person though.

We do need a new trainer soon

IMO I agree with Ancelotti quote about Beckham always a great footballer but not a World Class, off field he probably GOAT

start to respect him more after Capello praise him after being frozen out in Madrid

Being a "footballer" involves much more than kicking a ball.

For every diver, racist, money hungry low life asshole that is exposed Beckham will be more missed.

Such class. Such a gentleman.
