David Beckham, who marked his return to the Real Madrid starting line-up with a goal in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Real Sociedad, has been praised by Rcoach Fabio Capello.
Beckham was playing his first game for Real since announcing he was to quit the Spanish capital for America in the summer Beckham.
In his post-match appraisal Capello conceded he was delighted with the contribution of the returning England captain.
“Over the last few weeks, he has trained well and today he played a great match,” said Capello.
“Beckham is a player who is very well integrated in the squad and we’re all very happy with him. I like to look ahead to the future instead of back to the past.
“I spoke with Beckham twice last week and only we know what we said to each other.
“Regarding my comment about his free-kick efficiency, I said that he had not scored many set-piece goals up to this point. However, he scored an essential goal for us.
“I have always said the same thing in my press conferences. I will repeat it again. Beckham is an intelligent person and he has always displayed a commendable attitude.”
