David Beckham has declared that he will not celebrate should he score during AC Milan’s clash with Manchester United when the two sides meet at Old Trafford in the Champions League.

The former Manchester United midfielder is looking forward to returning to the club on March 16th and insists his respect for the supporters would prevent any emotional celebrations.

“Sometimes emotion can get the better of you when you score” he told Inside United, “but I do not think I would celebrate. I respect the supporters and the club.”

The 34-year-old went on to reveal the difficulty he experienced when he left United for Real Madrid in 2003.

“United was the club I always wanted to play for and I loved every minute of my time there. The first few years [after leaving] were hard and there were a lot of things I missed,” he added.

“The relationship I have with the fans is still important to me. I went through some difficult times but they never stopped supporting me. I would not have got through everything without them.

“To me they are the best fans in the world and the support they gave me week in, week out was incredible. Nothing will ever better that.”
