Man Utd legend Neville understands Beckham Olympics omission

Manchester United legend Gary Neville says he understands the omission of LA Galaxy star David Beckham from the Team GB squad.

The former England captain, a close friend and former Manchester United team-mate of Neville, failed to get one of the three over-age places in the squad.

"We live in a man's world. You have to front up when you get disappointments," Neville said in the Daily Star.

"The manager has to select the squad he wants - and he didn't want David in. A manager has to make tough decisions. You have to respect that."
