Beckham: I'm torn over Tottenham and Madrid

April 5, 2011 - 0:0

David Beckham has admitted he can't decide who he wants to win the Champions League showdown between Real Madrid and Tottenham.

Beckham was part of the LA Galaxy team that battled to a 1-0 win over Philadelphia Union on Saturday night.
The former England captain played with Spanish giants Real from 2003 until 2007, while he trained with Spurs in the January transfer window.
And he admits his allegiance will be torn during the forthcoming matches. 'I played for Real Madrid for four years and have always said I would support them in all their matches,' he said. 'But then I was at Spurs, so there are mixed emotions.
'Besides, my grandfather was a follower of Tottenham. So I think I will just enjoy the game.'
LA Galaxy claimed a narrow victory thanks to Leonardo's winner, which was set up by Beckham. They needed to bounce back quickly after their 4-1 defeat against Real Salt Lake.
'The performance was more important
[Saturday] than anything else,' Beckham said. 'We wanted the three points of course, but after the embarrassment of last week, the performance was the important thing – and the character – and I think we showed that.'
Talking about his free-kick which set up the goal, Beckham added: 'I know when I put it in the right areas, we can score from it.
'It’s something we practice week in and week out in training. If I put it in the right area, I know we’ve got either Omar
[Gonzalez] or Leonardo. They’re brave players. They stick their head on it.'
