Celestine Babayaro ex super eagles defender, has spoken about his experiece with David Beckham.
The former Chelsea defender disclosed that David Beckham, ex-Manchester United winger and English born player is the toughest opponent he faced in his career.
He disclosed this while speaking on Nigeria Info FM on Sunday.
”The toughest player I played against? I played against a lot of really top players, players like Ronaldo, Figo, Ryan Giggs and so on”
”But I will tell you this, the most difficult player I ever played against is David Beckham. You know why? You don’t even need to go close to him, all he needs to do is control and cross.”
”One of the best crossers of the ball in the world, so for you to mark that kind of person is very difficult because he can cross the ball from anywhere even from the halfway line”.
Babayaro is the first African player to be signed by Chelsea when he joined the Stamford Bridge outfit from Anderlecht in 1997.
