David Beckham believes Real Madrid can end Barcelona’s dominance of Spanish football and win the Primera Division title this season.

Beckham’s former club have not won a major trophy since 2008 but have thus far impressed under new boss Jose Mourinho, with the nine-time European champions top of the Spanish top flight and unbeaten in 12 games.

The LA Galaxy midfielder spoke admirably about the Portuguese coach and emphasised his belief that Real can reclaim the title from Pep Guardiola’s side this season.

“As much as I respect Barcelona and think it’s a great club, my heart is always with Real Madrid,” said Beckham.

“So I believe that this year, with the manager they’ve got in, with Florentino Perez – I love Florentino who is such a great man and makes special things happen at the club – so with him there, with the players they’ve got at the club, I believe they will be number one this year.”

Speaking about Mourinho, he added: “I love him as a person, he’s an incredible person. He was one of the first people to send me a message after I got my injury.”
