“I was on the phone to him (Cruise) for about an hour last night (Thursday) and an hour the night before,” said Beckham.
“Obviously I asked him for his advice because he is a very wise man and a very good friend of mine. It’s going to be a big help for us to have friends when we arrive in LA.”
Wise or not, it’s certainly a good decision for David Beckham considering he’s been sidelined and hasn’t won a trophy at Real. Especially with so much money being offered. A masterful move.
I like how Kevin Nolan (Bolton captain) puts it:
Beckham has taken a lot of stick from people all around the world but he has just hit back at them with a huge wad of cash.
Update: The Guardian Sports blog has good quotes, too. In a post titled, “Nuggets”
…California was always favourite and there is a degree of logic in a galáctico from Real joining a galaxy at Los Angeles.
Ha, ha! It gets more evil:
Given his friendship with Tom Cruise a film career might beckon once his playing days are over – but only if silent movies make a comeback.
Beckham doesn’t need to care what people say because he will continue to laugh his way to the bank.
