Man Utd boss Ferguson: Marriage changed Beckham

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says getting married to Posh Spice changed David Beckham.

Ferguson, who was speaking to an audience at the Citizens Theatre in Glasgow, said: "He was never a problem until he got married. He used to go into work with the academy coaches at night time, he was a fantastic young lad.

"Getting married into that entertainment scene was a difficult thing - from that moment his life was never going to be the same.

"He is such a big celebrity, football is only a small part. The big part is his persona."
