DAVID BECKHAM

Date of Birth: 2/5/75

Position: Midfielder

Club: Manchester United

Nationality: England

Notes: Beckham established himself during the 1995/96 double winning season in right midfield in the void left by the departure of Andrei Kanchelskis. This came after a very successful loan period at Preston North End. During the 1996/97 season Beckham won another league title and the PFA Young Player of the Year award. Beckham was at France 98 scoring a good goal early on but foolishly retaliating and getting sent off when England needed him most. In 1998/99 he helped Manchester United to the treble of league, cup and European Cup. This resulted in him coming second to Rivaldo in the voting for both the 2000 World and European Player of the Year. He won his fourth league title in 1999/00.
