http://www.marca.com/edicion/marca/futbol/1a_division/real_madrid/es/desarrollo/728846.html Some very harsh words for Beckham...who by all standards has been an exemplary teammate (see Phil Ball's article on soccernet.com for more on that) Anyway, the gist of what Calderon is saying is that it was a good decision by the board of Real Madrid not to renew his contract (which seems contradictory to prior information that Beckham had a 2 year extension on the table from RM). More insulting (good thing Beckham doesn't speak Spanish, lol) is that Calderon says the proof of it being a good decision not to re-sign him was that even though Beckham was available on a free transfer, no other clubs wanted to sign him. I might be mistaken here -- but didn't both Milan clubs and several clubs in England express serious interest in signing him (Bolton & Newcastle come to mind)? I though that as a RM fan, that I would like Calderon as president, but he's coming off more and more unprofessional all the time. Meanwhile, Beckham lauded RM and the support he received during his press conference with MLS. So who's the class act now?
