Philippe Senderos still holds David Bechkam in high esteem as the best ever.


Philippe Sanders has voiced his admiration for many greats of the modern game, among them is  Thierry Henry , Ronaldinho and David Beckham.

The former Arsenal defender prefers very much the England international who he describes as a man who possessed the Midas touch.

Senderos added: “I remember him once coming to Arsenal to do like a pre-season, we were doing long balls with [Gael] Clichy. There was a triangle, Clichy, myself and David Beckham, we were practising long balls, right foot, left foot, 30/40-yard balls for half an hour. He did not miss one ball, every single one would just get right to your foot, one metre from the floor, like really perfect balls. When he missed the first one, we both stopped and said, ‘Okay, that’s it!’”

Beckham hung up his boots in 2013, following a spell at Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain, but remains very much involved in competitive football. He helped to launch the Inter Miami franchise in MLS, with eight-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi now part of a star-studded squad in Florida.

The former PSG Star man adores Lionel Messi to the core and it will depicted in the way he looks at the Argentine International when he is playing, he has able to give the World cup winner the perfect farewell gift, unlike before when he was always playing competitive football and never had enough rest and time to spend with his family, but its all peaceful now.

Messi gets to play when he is only fully fit and this echoes very much of man who equally recognizes a genius.
