David Beckham is only Englishman who could have played for Brazil, says legend Ronaldo in video chat between the pair – The Sun | The Sun
DAVID BECKHAM has been hailed as the only Englishman who could have played for Brazil by former Real Madrid teammate Ronaldo Nazario.
The pair spent four years together at the Bernabeu as part of Los Blancos fabled Galacticos era that won LaLiga back in 2007.
And the two spent an afternoon last year on Instagram live reminiscing about their history together.
According to Ronaldo, 46, who hit an incredible 83 LaLiga goals in just 127 games, he jokingly revealed that he should be thanking Beckham for his pin-point deliveries.
He said: “For me, you were one of the best of all time in the centre, the way you touch the ball, could put the ball wherever you want, and without looking at me the ball would come.
“I should thank you for many balls you gave to me.
"You were amazing."
I remember you turning around to me and saying that the Brazil squad believed that if there was any English player that could play in the Brazilian team it would be me
Legendary former England captain Beckham was likewise full of praise for World Cup Winner El Fenomeno, who he credited for helping him settle in Spain.
The Manchester United academy graduate, 47, made headlines around the world when he sealed a £25million move to Madrid following twelve years at Old Trafford.
He told Ronaldo: “When I moved from Manchester and I had been there my whole life, to move to Madrid was a big move for me.
“One of the first people that I ever saw was you, when you walked into the changing room it made me feel comfortable to be at the club.
