Beck's Back to Europe, sorta.

I just read about this today, but already I’ve seen four different articles about it, each of them vilifying Becks for wanting to loan to AC Milan. Now, I’ve condensed the article below, but you get the gist. Reading all the other articles about how “Beckham is disrespecting American and MLS” made me want to puke. They sound a lot like those mewling, needy boyfriends… “if you walk out that door…. I’ll be here waiting but I’ll pout about it and be passive-aggressive for years…”

Anyways, the shocker to me is that he’s joining AC Milan. Having already played for the top teams in England and Spain, I guess Italy would be next on the list, but look at all the talent Milan already has. They made Semi-Finals in Champion’s League last year with Kaka, Pirlo, boy-faced Pato, and they already added Ronaldihno (perhaps the greatest since Beck’s left Man U) in July. I just feel bad for the rest of Europe now.

MILAN, Italy (AP)—AC Milan is close to signing David Beckham in a loan deal that would allow the Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder and former England captain to play in Italy for a few months starting in January.

With the Major League Soccer season in the United States nearly over, Beckham is eager to join another club in Europe so he can remain in shape and keep his place on England’s team for World Cup qualifying. England coach Fabio Capello has said he will not pick players who are not active.

“We’ll sign him for a few months and then he’ll go back. Beckham has chosen Milan,” Galliani said at Malpensa airport before flying to a UEFA Cup match. “Our team is very competitive and will remain as is, but Beckham is something different and intriguing.”

“David’s intention is to maintain his fitness and keep himself eligible for England’s selection,” he said. “He very much remains a Galaxy player and he would be in Los Angeles for the start of the 2009 MLS season.”

Beckham would join a squad at Milan that features Brazil standouts Ronaldinho, Kaka and Alexandre Pato, plus Italy’s Andrea Pirlo and Gennaro Gattuso.
