David Beckham reveals hardest team-mate he ever played with

Kevin Beirne

David Beckham has played with some of the biggest names in world football.

So when the former England captain took over the Manchester United Instagram account to talk about some of his former team-mates, we were all ears.

Having spent time not just at Old Trafford but at Real Madrid and AC Milan as well, we were pleasantly surprised to see him name a familiar face as the hardest player he’s ever taken the field with.

He named former United man Nicky Butt, citing the midfielder’s reaction after Beckham hit him on the head from 40 yards as his lasting memory of his old team-mate.
