Man Utd legend Beckham: FA Cup semis should not be held at Wembley

Manchester United legend David Beckham has stated his belief that only the FA Cup final should be held at Wembley.

Historically, the FA Cup semi-finals have been played at a neutral ground but since 2008, the final four fixtures have all been taking place at the FA's headquarters at Wembley.

Former England captain Beckham, who helped United lift the FA Cup on two occasions, is not a fan of Wembley hosting the semi finals of the competition and has stated that the venue should be reserved only for the final.

The 40-year-old said: "Wembley is for finals. There shouldn't be semi-finals in Wembley.

"The FA Cup is about reaching the FA Cup Final, and is about being in the final at Wembley."
