Wise Wenger & Wilshere Wants Beckham at Arsenal

By on January 5, 2011

Would he? Arsene Wenger has never disguised his respect for David Beckham

David Beckham is a footballer in demand at the moment, with several Premier League clubs interested in bringing him back to England in a short term loan deal. Tottenham, Newcastle and Blackburn have all confirmed their interest, and Jack Wilshere of Arsenal has also expressed his feelings that Beckham would be a great example to him and the team thanks to his “professional attitude, ability and experience”.

But by the looks of L.A Galaxy’s stance on things, no deal will be done quickly. Why? The MLS side are baffled that Beckham wants to leave. Its odd they think that. Absolutely no disrespect to the American football League, but it is nothing compared to English football. Can you blame Beckham for thinking about a move back to the place where he made his name; a place which turned him into a global star – a place he shouldn’t have ever left? England is where the real competitive football is, and Beckham knows it. His Manchester United days were the best of his life and he cannot be blamed for wanting to relive something similar with Tottenham.

The move isn’t about grabbing headlines, nor is it about making money – he has a life time supply of both. This is about playing some real football against world class professionals in an environment of a team challenging for the title – and it is also to maintain his fitness of course.

I couldn’t agree more with what Arsene Wenger said:

“At the time he was practising here, he was ready. Since he had his injury I don’t know because I haven’t seen him practice or play.

“The only thing I can say, of course you don’t need to speak about his talent or his professional attitude because that was absolutely fantastic.

“I respect a lot, the guy who plays until the last day of his potential and doesn’t care too much about what people say because he knows he will never play again after that,”

Beckham of course trained at Arsenal a few years back and obviously impressed Wenger. Meanwhile, Jack Wilshere said on Twitter:

“Bring Becks to Arsenal. what a great Example he would be for all of us! His professional attitude, ability and experience! love 2 work with him!”

I can understand that Galaxy don’t want a repeat of the last loan deal to AC Milan in which Beckham received a terrible injury to his achilles, and therefore missed a few games for the MLS side. But to be honest, I think they just don’t want to let him go as they are afraid that he may become too comfortable in England. Comfortable enough to stay.

Tell me what you think!

    Wenger will sign Beckhams kids before he signs Beckham himself. Experience, professionalism, leadership – these are all traits that wenger is scared off and actively avoids.

    Beckham just wants to make sure he stays relevant in Europe and he can only do that by playing somewhere in Europe.
    Beckham is a brand therefore has to stay relevant, not playing football for 4months when everybody else in the world are playing and there is no World Cup bid to work on therefore Beckham brand will be too quite for many months and the brand cant afford that .

    I am saying this because i don’t think he can really help any top side any more in the PL.
    But saying the above , i do appreciate his mental strength and his work rate , the guy never gives up until he cant really play anymore.
    I think every player should emulate him.
