Ferguson: Beckham's mission was to be famous

LONDON (AP) -- A decade after kicking a boot at David Beckham's head, Alex Ferguson is using his autobiography to criticize the star's apparent pre-occupation with fame.

At Manchester United, Ferguson developed Beckham into one of the world's most recognizable sportsmen, but the midfielder left United in 2003 for Real Madrid under a cloud after his relationship with the manager broke down.

Ferguson writes that "David was the only player I managed who chose to be famous, who made it his mission to be known outside the game."
