news from becks

i have decided that this blog will go for becks, cesc, and other football news. it might also contain some other stuff too, considering i have other blog to accommodate my thoughts. i love this blog, that is the reason i keep it instead of abandoning completely. i guess, both of us have refrained from writing on this because we have found a page that really belong to us. we will write something of course, but won't be that often. we are passionate about football and wouldn't go by a weekend without watching a game. and by giving this page a special  'duty', i will have peace in my mind knowing that i will find a place to blab about my favorite clubs and other news surrounding football.

i came across an article in goal.com claiming that becks can still play football until he's 40 years old. rather than pondering without a single clue, let me guide you to the article.

Milan: Beckham Can Play Until 40

The Rossoneri's fitness guru has declared that old Goldenballs has another six years left in him...

When David Beckham left Real Madrid for the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007, it was assumed he was waving goodbye to Europe and top-tier club football.

Less than two years later, however, the England midfielder is back on the continent after completing a loan switch to AC Milan, where he will spend the Major League Soccer off-season.

The Italian giants are eager to make the deal permanent, and club medic Jean-Pierre Meerseeman believes Becks, who turned 34 in May, can play on until 2015.

The Sun quoted Meerseeman as saying: “Beckham could go on for another five or six years.

“His cardiovascular readings are very good. His basic fitness is excellent. All he needs to do now is to alter his training programme slightly.”

Milan's track record in fielding veritable OAPs is impressive. Alessandro Costacurta played until the age of 41, while Paolo Maldini is still going at 40. All three of their first-team goalkeepers - Christian Abbiati, Zeljko Kalac and Dida - are in their mid 30s.

And although Beckham has not played since the MLS season ended, Meerseeman reckons he will be fit and firing within three weeks.

He continued: “We test and re-test our players in every aspect of body and mind.

“David is behind the others right now in terms of match fitness. It will take 15-20 days to reach the required level.”
