David’s Latest Blog
What a busy few weeks it’s been. We’ve played three league games and a cup match in just over two weeks, winning all four which is great and keeps us in the hunt for the trophies.
We are now just six points behind Inter in the league but we have a game in hand, which makes our next match all the more special, we’re playing Inter on Sunday evening! We’ve been training hard this week and the mood in the camp is really good, so it’s a game I’m really looking forward to- undoubtedly one of the great derby matches in world football.
Off the pitch things have been busy as well. This week I unveiled my new adidas Originals collection with James Bond. The reception was positive which is pleasing considering the hard work we put in
The new adidas Star Wars teaser also broke this week, you can see the advert on my website or on Facebook. I had great fun filming it and loved watching Star Wars when I was growing up, see if you can recognise some of the famous faces from the advert. There will be more to come soon.
David Beckham gears up for “special” Milan derby
David Beckham says the atmosphere has been building up for weeks ahead of Sunday’s Milan derby match, which is free-to-air on ESPN UK.
AC Milan are currently six points behind reigning champions Inter with a game in hand and a victory at the weekend could allow them to go level on points.
After Beckham’s return on loan in January, Milan have won three out of three matches in Serie A including a 3-0 victory over Juventus, but the England midfielder knows Sunday’s match is the focus of the city’s attention.
“It’s talked about for weeks, and then the week before,” he told ESPN during an exclusive interview. “It’s all anyone talks about.
“It’s in the papers, it’s on the TV. It doesn’t matter what position you are in the league – when it comes to a derby game, it really matters as it’s such a big game.
“Everyone knows what Italians are like anyway with football. They’re passionate and have so much enthusiasm for any game but, especially when it gets to a big game like this, the whole city gets involved.
“And it’s special. It’s a special atmosphere. It is [important] because we were quite a few points behind Inter and, obviously with Inter drawing at the weekend, we keep grinding away and keep grinding results and kind of getting back into it.”Source
