FA Cup win would make it a successful season for Manchester United, David Beckham exclusively tells talkSPORT
Tuesday, February 23, 2016
United have endured a miserable campaign so far, with the club crashing out of the Champions League early and failing to mount a Premier League title challenge.
With the Red Devils also failing to excite fans with their style of play, there are growing calls for manager Louis van Gaal to step aside.
But Beckham believes Van Gaal can still rescue their season by leading the club to FA Cup glory.
United booked their spot in the quarter-finals by beating Shrewsbury on Monday night and the Old Trafford legend, speaking on the Sports Bar, said: “It has been a disappointing season so far obviously because of the performances and the way we have played in certain games, but any silverware at the end of the year or any good run in any competition is successful.
“Unless you win everything at Man United as fan and as a player you never think it is going to be enough, but at the end of a year where there has been a lot of criticism and the performances haven’t been as good, to come away and be in an FA Cup final… there is nothing you enjoy more than going down to London, getting ready in your FA Cup suit and playing in these games.”
