Dwight Yorke says David Beckham is the best crosser he has ever seen
Dwight Yorke has been talking up former Manchester United teammate David Beckham as he looks back on a glorious spell at Old Trafford.
The Treble winner says Beckham made his life so much easier as a striker and he even changed his game because of the former England captain.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Yorke said: ““[Beckham]’s crosses were so quick and accurate, I stopped dribbling past people.
“I used to go past people and stuff but in this team you didn’t need to do all that because the quality was so good.”
Yorke went on to add that Beckham is the best crosser he has ever seen, above current City star Kevin de Bruyne.
He said: “He’s just ridiculous: [Kevin] De Bruyne has got a bit of fizz, but Becks is still the best I’ve seen.”
Today is April 14th, the anniversary of United clinching the Premier League title in 2000/01.
Yorke scored only nine league goals this season, but this included a memorable hat-trick against Arsenal in a 6-1 victory.
To this date, this title win remains the earliest any team have won the Premier League title.
Despite Liverpool threatening to break this record this season, it remains intact, and is a record which may never be beaten.
After this title win, Yorke would have just one more season at United, and Beckham two.
To this day, both players are often under appreciated by the football world at large.
But for United fans who watched them play and celebrated every goal and assist, their combination was truly special.
