Only David Beckham could make a club miss him . . . when he never even played there.
Paris Saint-Germain was the anticipated landing spot for Beckham after his contract expired with LA Galaxy at the end of December. And even though frolicking through the streets of Paris like Owen Wilson seemed like a grand time, England’s greatest export ultimately decided to return to MLS and re-upped with LA.
But PSG still misses his essence, although he never actually was part of the club. Just ask head coach Leonardo.
“Even though he’s never played for Paris St Germain, it feels like he’s already contributed something here.”
Leonardo sounds like a jilted lover who doesn’t know when the relationship ended (or that it never started) – it has been two months, it’s time to move on.
I bet he still sends text messages to Beckham late at night.
“David Beckham coming to Paris is something that everyone dreamt about,” the coach added in the interview, which definitely proves that he is still sending “I miss you” text messages.
But Beckham has long made his choice: freedom fries > baguette.
