Beckham has called on Van Gaal to involve more of the 'Class of 92' at Old Trafford after Ryan Giggs brought in Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt and retained the services of Phil Neville for his spell in interim charge after David Moyes was sacked.
"It will be great to see if Scholesy, Butty and Phil can be involved," the former England captain said.
"When I saw them all sat on the bench it was an amazing sight and it was one that made me emotional - I've spent my whole career with these lads."
And when asked if he wanted to be sat alongside his former team-mates, Beckham added: "Of course I did, I was proud to see that image."
