David Beckham Has Revealed The Best Player He Played Alongside In His Career

David Beckham Has Revealed The Best Player He Played Alongside In His Career

Football legend David Beckham has revealed that current Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane was the best player that he played alongside in his illustrious career.

The 45-year-old Manchester United legend left Old Trafford in 2003 and made a sensational move to Los Blancos in a reported deal worth around £24.5m.

And Beckham was one of the 'Galactico' stars at Madrid alongside the likes of Zidane, Ronaldo and Luis Figo.

The former England skipper revealed that Zidane was the standout player that he had the privilege to share the pitch with.

But Beckham, who retired from football in 2013 after a short spell with Paris Saint-Germain, also praised 'Zizou' as the "best person."

The former United winger said at an Adidas event in 2013: "Zidane was the best player who I played with.

"He is a gentleman, and to be here with him is very special. For me, in addition to being the best player, he is the best person."

Zidane also praised Beckham at the time and argued his former teammate still had plenty of football left in him during his time at PSG.

"I probably decided to retire when Messi was running past me," the former Madrid and PSG star said.

"Playing in the MLS in 2012 and winning the championship there and then coming to PSG and winning the French league here, it's a good way to go out."
