cant decide whether this makes me happy or sad


David Beckham has admitted he nearly cried when he discovered AC Milan were paired with Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League.



Beckham is back with the Rossoneri for a second loan spell and the Italian giants were paired with his old club in the last 16 of Europe's prestigious club competition. The England international began his career at Old Trafford and made over 300 appearances for the Red Devils prior to leaving the Premier League giants for Real Madrid in 2003.

The games with United are Beckham's first against his former club and he admits his emotions got the better of him when he found out he would be returning to the Theatre of Dreams.

"When I knew the draw, I nearly cried," revealed Beckham.

"I love the club. It's going to be an emotional night.

The former England captain cannot wait for the fixture, admitting he misses the club every single day.

"It’s such a special occasion - to be there in front of the fans, manager and friends. It’s going to be incredible,” he said as he began his second spell on loan with Milan.

“I don’t know whether I’ll be happy if we lose because I’d like to progress further in the competition and when you come up against a club that you support and a club that you spent so many great years at and [you’ve] still got so many friends at the club, those things are always difficult.

"But it’s a nice problem to have because I’ve never returned to Old Trafford as a player."

"In seven years I miss it every day."

"I miss being a Manchester United player, I miss the club, I miss the fans and friends at the club. It’s always going to be a special place in my heart."

"To return as an AC Milan player makes it extra special.

"That’s the big thing for me, to return with a team like this and a club like this. It’s got so much history, which is the same with Manchester United."
