LA Galaxy man makes totally unnecessary statement.
David Beckham has said he will never manage England, but has indicated his desire to play for his country at the 2012 European Championships.
Beckham, 35, was an unofficial member of manager Fabio Capello’s staff at the World Cup in South Africa after injury ruled him out of the tournament.
“At the moment I have no interest in being a coach or becoming a manager,” the midfielder told BBC Sport.
Beckham also said the players were to blame for England’s poor World Cup.
England were beaten 4-1 by Germany in the last 16 and were disappointing throughout the tournament.
And although Capello came under huge criticism following England’s exit, Beckham insisted the manager was not responsible for the early exit.
“The players are to blame,” said Beckham.
“Without a doubt it was the right decision for him [Capello] to keep his job.
“When the players step on that field is up to them to perform. Speaking to the lads, and knowing them as well as I do, they know they didn’t play and perform well enough. That is why we didn’t go any further in the competition.
“Everything was set up for us, the preparation was right and everything the manager and his staff did was right. Behind the scenes everything in the camp was perfect. We just didn’t perform.
“The lads would admit, and a few of them have already, that they just didn’t play well enough in the games.” (BBC Sport)
Why did this need to be said? Its like me stating that I will never be the first astronaut to fly to Mars, it’s bleeding obvious. Even if some irretrievably stupid interviewer asked David Beckham straight out if he was ever going to manage England, Becks should have just said “why are you asking me such a bleedingly obvious” question? And then slapped him.
The former Real Madrid and Man United man is however spot on in his assessment that the players are 100% to blame for the horrible World Cup debacle and then spot on in his statement that Fabio Capello is the right man for the job.
David Beckham also went on to state with absolute certainty that he will not be representing the UK at the next Eurovision Song Contest!
