Chapters of David Beckham and Ferguson’s struggle at Manchester United

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson walked into the locker room with his face white as an ember of rage. There was silence as soon as he set foot in the room. Without much introduction, the veteran manager delivered harsh criticism and insults to first-team star David Beckham. Beckham did not accept the insult in front of his colleagues, and responded to his coach with the most terrible.

The room turned into a battlefield of words between the most important couple in the English city of Manchester at the time. None of the players dared to intervene to stop the confrontation, and the two remained in a state of frenzy and frenzy in which they exchanged responsibility for exiting the FA Cup (2002-2003 season), for several minutes.

The argument calmed down a bit and Ferguson walked towards the exit door, but David Beckham whispered some obscenities that the manager heard, who turned directly to the England star, his eyes a sea of ​​anger.

With a graceful movement, Alex Ferguson moved to one of the boxes in the locker room, pulled out a shoe and tossed it straight at David Beckham, with one of the nails hitting the England player’s face and blood oozing out from his face.

Everyone remained dumbfounded, including Beckham and Ferguson himself, and no one believed what he had just seen, but David Beckham quickly moved towards his coach to beat and assault him before captain Roy Keane and Dutchman Ruud van Nistelrooy saved their coach from Beckham’s punches and the crisis passed without further damage.
Football followers often think that the relationship between coaches on the one hand and players on the other is limited to the technical aspects and the training that the players receive at the hands of the coaches. But the situation in the corridors of clubs, especially major clubs such as Manchester United, differs from this prevailing impression.

In addition to the technical condition, the football coach is responsible for the psychological and physical condition of his players, and he has a great role in containing the players, motivating them and raising their morale.

In short, as He says Current Bayern Munich coach, Julian Nagelsmann, “70% of a coach’s job lies in communication.” The relationship between the coach and the player from a psychological point of view is often built on the condition and mentality of the player, not the coach. Every player has a different mentality from his colleague, while the coach must have a mentality like a chameleon, which is colored according to the player and his mentality.

At the same time, the coach plays a role similar to that of a father in his relationship with his players, but this often leads to clashes between him and the players. Just as a father is desperate to keep his family, the coach must be firm and strict in applying the rules and regulations with the players in order to maintain order within the club.

Those rules include behavior inside and outside the club, and the image of the player as a representative of the club and role models for children, which sometimes means imposing a uniform and standard language on all players, banning blatant haircuts, and even restricting sex for players at times.

The clash of Beckham and Ferguson, whose most prominent chapters we will monitor here, is only an episode in the series of clashes between stars and coaches, which began with the beginning of the transformation of football into an industry.

The shoe incident cost Beckham a lot

After the “shoe and blood” incident, the most famous English football legend in the current century and former Manchester United club, David Beckham, did not live long in the team, as Ferguson quickly asked the management to sell the player and get rid of him. Indeed, after several months, he moved to Real Madrid for only 25 million pounds, while his market value was more than 40 million pounds.

That resounding explosion was not the result of chance or under the pressure of losing and bidding farewell to the FA Cup. Rather, it was announcing the end of a complex and thorny relationship full of clashes between the two that began to collapse with Beckham’s association with the “Spice Girls” girl.

Beckham is linked to Victoria and Sir is angry

David Beckham and his girlfriend Victoria Adams first met at a charity football match in 1997. Victoria was a member of the Spice Girls at the time. David went to most of Victoria’s concerts, while she attended most of his football matches, without the press noticing their relationship.

After two years of dating, their lavish wedding took place in a historic castle in Dublin, Ireland in July 1998, and white peace doves were released during the ceremony.

The couple quickly became celebrity couples, attending events such as Antonio Berardi’s fashion show during London Fashion Week in 1998.

More lights were shed on David Beckham, who turned from a football star to a world celebrity, and became more and more famous among the elite who follow their news, which was not common at the end of the nineties and the beginning of the second millennium.

That global attention that Beckham received affected his behavior and made him arrogant in dealing with his colleagues and accepting criticism and coaching directions, as Ferguson says in his personal memoirs.

With time, Beckham and Victoria became a global “icon” whose marriage is celebrated, established and traced everywhere, which only added to Ferguson’s wrath on Beckham. The simplest news of the team became the subject of journalists’ curiosity, which affected the team’s stability.

To make matters worse, Beckham broke Ferguson’s home ban on the team when, on a May day in 1999, he secretly traveled to Ireland for a quick meeting with Victoria, but the supposedly secret meeting was exposed by the staff. At the club, Beckham headed from the airport to the team’s training headquarters, arriving at six in the morning. This is what Ferguson knew, and he was growing in him a conviction that David Beckham had changed and that he saw himself as bigger than the club. Ferguson’s golden rule says: “There is no place for a player who sees himself as greater than the team.”

Shirt fight number 7

in a His personal diaryFormer Manchester United captain Roy Keane revealed some of the events that he experienced in his career within the walls of “Old Trafford” and under the leadership of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Kane, who has become a staunch pundit for Sky Sports, maintains that the armband is important and an honor for any player, but there are also some special numbers that are particularly important to be worn by the greats, and that at Manchester United the number 7 is the iconic number.

The number 7 shirt was worn by France’s Eric Cantona and Brian Robson, and by George Best. After Cantona left the team, the number 7 shirt became vacant, waiting for someone to carry it with all his weight.
The first to seek the shirt was, of course, David Beckham, who informed the club’s management of his desire to wear it; Because of his rising stardom and because he is one of the club’s sons, he has been in the ranks of his team since his youth. But Roy Keane reveals Ferguson’s refusal to give the No. 7 shirt to the English star after Cantona’s departure, Roy said: “Ferguson asked me to come to his office, and when I arrived he said to me: I want you to wear the number 7, but I said I don’t think about it. Ferguson replied angry “I know David Beckham wants it, and I don’t want to give him that shirt!”

Beckham won that round with his coach, and wore the number 7 before moving to Real Madrid. The distinguished shirt goes to Cristiano Ronaldo, who appeared and shone and became the best in the world and also moved to Real Madrid, but the difference is in the way out between him and Beckham.

Forced him to shave his hair at Wembley!

Ferguson was a ‘father’ in the truest sense of the word, not just for the players, but for the club as a whole. He had powers that no coach at any other club had ever had.

Ferguson is the club’s renaissance maker and the writer of its first history. Therefore, he had the right to interfere in everything that was going on around him, and no one had the audacity to object or clash with him. So Beckham wore his beanie to training, back to the hotel, dinner and all the way to Wembley; Fearing that Ferguson finds out about him. Beneath the beanie, Beckham hid his latest hairstyling trend, the mohawk fashion that would become a global fashion.

After warm-ups and in preparation for the match, Beckham took off his hat and remained calm in the room; So that his coach would not notice him, but he fell into a taboo and Ferguson saw him, who ordered him to shave it before the match.
