Ex-Man Utd boss Ferguson: Beckham lost focus

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson feels David Beckham allowed his celebrity status to affect his football.

Ferguson would have preferred the former England skipper to have avoided the celebrity culture he became so synonymous with.

"His focus changed," said Ferguson.

"He got drawn into that celebrity status.

"I don't think he could listen. He just said 'I'm in love'. There is nothing you can do with that. And therefore he lost the focus.

"But how can you argue with life? He's an icon for young people; represents himself the proper way. And I say well done."
