this is brief comment from the coach himself regarding becks loan move to AC Milan this winter. capello seems pleased with the move and i have a suggestion that he is totally okay with it as long as he doesn't break any rule.
"Milan has made a good acquisition," England manager Fabio Capello, who also coached Beckham at Real Madrid, said.
"In Madrid, I dropped him from the team because he signed with Los Angeles, but he continued to come and train and I put him back on the team."

i have asked myself on why raul is still the captain of real madrid? and now i have the answer. he's a good teammate and a total supportive player, even he's become a former teammate. when capello and executives of real madrid decided to freeze up becks contract negotiations, and banned him from playing for the club until the end of the season just because he had signed a deal with LA Galaxy in winter transfer window, raul and other players gave strong comments about the controversial decisions and backed him up 100%. the war paid off though, becks was again part of the team and real madrid won the league. 2 years after, he's still backing him 100%. a good motivator people say and that he is. here's what he has to say....

"Beckham is a great player, a great professional," said Raul in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I think he can give Milan a lot."
Beckham's departure from Real Madrid to MLS in 2007 was a blow for Raul, who had hoped the former Manchester United man would remain with the Spanish champions.
"It was a pity to see him leave," said Raul.
The Spain international laughed off reports that Milan are following the 'galactico' policy used by Madrid during Florentino Perez's reign as club president, which involved signing one of the world's best-known players every season.
"Milan are signing people, not 'galacticos'," said Raul. "Ronaldinho and Beckham, just to mention two names, are above all two players that want to bring joy to the fans. The rest is nonsense."
