No regrets over sale of Beckham from Man U, says Ferguson

London, Feb 3 (ANI): Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson has said that he has no regrets over the sale of ace midfielder David Beckham six years ago.

The midfielder was at the peak of his career when he was sold by United to Real Madrid in 2003, but Ferguson feels the matter has long since been consigned to history.

The pair will be reunited this month when the Red Devils take on Beckham's current club, AC Milan, in the Champions League.

When asked about Beckham's 25 million pounds move from Old Trafford, Ferguson said: "No regrets. We move on. The only difference with David's return to Manchester United compared with other players is that there will be a big media circus surrounding him when AC Milan arrives."

"He's such a high-profile celebrity - not just a high-profile footballer - and we haven't really seen anybody else return to the club in that situation. Our job is to concentrate on the football match and let the David Beckham media circus carry on - we know we're not going to stop it anyway," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

Beckham left United after a well-publicized rift with Ferguson but they have since patched up their differences.

The former England captain is now on loan at AC Milan ahead of the World Cup.

And Ferguson is not surprised to see the 34-year-old back at the San Siro for a second spell.

"I think I told him myself last year when I saw him before our game against Inter that he should be thinking about getting back to Europe if he wanted to go to the World Cup," he said. (ANI)
