Man Utd legend Beckham: Robson my hero

Manchester United legend David Beckham has explained why he took the No7 shirt at Old Trafford.

Beckham inherited the number from Eric Cantona.

He told the Daily Mal: "I looked up to Bryan Robson; he was the player I wanted to become. He wore number seven for England, number seven for Manchester United, he captained England and he was the person that I really looked up to.

"I also looked up to Sir Bobby Charlton because he was my dad's hero and when you think about heroes, my dad was one of mine."
