Three years after leaving the Bernabeu, David Beckham admitted his love for Real Madrid and how much he misses the time he spent in Madrid. In an interview with Spanish TV station Antena 3 in Los Angeles, David said:

“As much as I respect Barcelona and think it’s a great club……. My heart is always with Real Madrid.”

“I think this year, with the manager they have, Florentino Perez … I love Florentino. He is such a great man. He makes special things happen at the club. With him there and the players that they’ve got, I believe they will be number one this year.” When asked about the manger he said, “As a manager, I love Mourinho. As a person he is incredible. He was one of the first people to send me a message after my injury. He’s an amazing man and such a talent.”

David showed his views on who he thinks should win the Ballon D’Or and said, “ I would give the Ballon d’Or to Iker because he’s my friend. Spending time at Real Madrid I was able to have some great relationships and Iker was always one of the best. And Raul, too, of course. Being a part of Real Madrid… We had so many great players on the team. I love living in Los Angeles, but I had such an amazing time in Madrid. It was a shame it ended because I loved playing for the club and I love the people there. Like I said, I miss it.”

Real Madrid are currently top of the La Liga table with 20 points in 8 games still being unbeaten, 1 point ahead of arch rivals who are in third and Villareal in second.
