AC Milan coach Leonardo: Beckham can handle Man Utd return

AC Milan coach Leonardo knows it will be an emotional night for David Beckham in their Champions League clash with Manchester United.

Beckham is expected to again start the game on the bench.

"We know it will be a very special match for him," said the Milan coach. "He knows the atmosphere, the team, how we play. He can play everywhere. He is very smart, very intelligent, he's perfect.

"David has nothing to prove. But fortunately we have a lot of players in good condition and now we have the possibility to choose in midfield and in attack and everywhere."
