London, Jan.19 (ANI): England football star David Beckham has told Manchester City fans that their club can never be bigger than Manchester United.
In a wide-ranging interview with Mirrorsport ahead of the Carling Cup semi-final clash between the two teams, Beckham said: "City will never be bigger than United. Money does a lot for a club and a team, but being successful and being one of the most recognised clubs in the world doesn't come from the money."
"It's about history. There aren't many clubs that can boast the history of Manchester United, Real Madrid, Barcelona or AC Milan. It's not about having all the money in the world. All that does is creates attention but you can't buy the history of a club," he added.
"I would never sign for Manchester City. That's mainly because I am a Man United fan. It doesn't matter about money. It is always about loyalty with Manchester United. They are the team I supported and the team that I played for for years and I just couldn't bring myself to sign for City. I couldn't do it," Beckham said.
He also rubbished reports of him quitting the sport after this year's World Cup in South Africa. (ANI)
