Beckham salutes Rooney skill

David Beckham described Wayne Rooney as among the world's best as Manchester United hammered his AC Milan side at Old Trafford. Rooney scored twice as United romped to a 4-0 last-16 second-leg win to secure a 7-2 aggregate victory and a place in the Champions League quarter-finals as Beckham's return to Old Trafford ended in defeat. He's such an exceptional talent, Beckham told ITV1 of Rooney. I think without a doubt he's one of the best, if not the best, player at the moment along with (Cristiano) Ronaldo and (Lionel) Messi. Beckham entered the fray midway through the second-half, coming off the substitutes' bench to a standing ovation. But the contest was already over. It was a disappointing night because we lost the game but returning here is always special, added the former England captain. It was unbelievable. I have to say thank you. It was really incredible. It was nice to be back, a disappointing night but nice to be back. What do you think? Have your say.
