Manchester United quickly moved on from the sale of David Beckham, says manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Beckham faces his former club for the first time tonight in AC Milan's colours.

"David left seven years ago," Ferguson stated. "You move on in life. That is what happens.

"This is a different team and different players.

"David has experience. He has over 100 caps for England and has played for Milan, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

"It is the same experience as the likes of Alessandro Nesta, Filippo Inzaghi and Clarence Seedorf. They all have that experience that Milan bring and I hope he is not celebrating at the end."
