London, Dec. 29 (ANI): England coach Fabio Capello has warned Alex Ferguson that David Beckham is ready to dump Manchester United out of Europe.
Beckham, 34, rejoined AC Milan yesterday for a second loan spell from LA Galaxy and faces United in the first knockout stage of this season's Champions League.
The Sun quoted Capello, as saying: "David will do well at Milan again - he is a player with his head screwed on as far as football is concerned and he'll help them succeed. I've no doubt about that and I'll take him to the World Cup at the end of the season so long as he is fit and playing regularly."
"I don't look at the birth date on a player's passport, age is not the primary concern. I always judge on quality and David has tons. He is serious about his game, he's a top-class professional and cares a great deal about this World Cup," he added.
Capello had more bad news for Ferguson by suggesting that United could be pipped to a fourth straight Premier League title come May.
The Italian reckons they are losing power at the wrong time, saying: "Manchester United were a war machine but they have started to slow down a bit compared to previously." (ANI)
