Beckham on his fantasy team:

"There are a lot of players around who you look at and think you'd love to play alongside.

"Zidane, Rivaldo and Del Piero are all great players who have masses of ability. But, in the end, it's down to the boss to sign the players he thinks will help the club win trophies.

"It will be interesting to see if there are many big transfers this month because it seems clubs don't have the money to make all the deals they might want to.

"I think we're happy to be in the position we're in at the moment after the injuries we've had.

"We're second in the Premiership, having beaten Arsenal at Old Trafford in December and there's still 15 games to play. You can add to that we're still in the Champions League and the FA Cup.

"The squad is really strong. Our position in the league and the fact we've done well in the Champions League despite the injury situation certainly means that everyone has to be on top of their game to be certain of a place in the side.

"Winning the Champions League is a wonderful feeling and it is something that I think we all want to do again.

"There's some really good sides in Europe. The whole competition is about going out and beating the teams like Real Madrid, AC Milan or Juventus.

"If you do that, you can say you have done yourselves justice and deserve to win the tournament."
