David Beckham: Sir Alex Ferguson made me shave my hair off

David Beckham shaved head 2000
David Beckham sported a variety of hairstyles during his career.

You don't have to be a professional psychotherapist to know that David Beckham and Sir Alex Ferguson had something of a complex relationship during their time together at Manchester United.

Beckham was the flashy, fame-chasing yin to Fergie's austere, disapproving yang, and the friction between the pair reached a pitch on more than a few occasions -- the infamous flying football boot incident being just one example.

The pair have since buried the hatchet, but while chin-wagging in an interview set...

Louis van Gaal still searching for his Manchester United identity

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol believes Robin van Persie's injury will finally bring consistency to Louis van Gaal's strike partnership.

I first became aware of a chap named Louis van Gaal about 35 years ago. I was growing up in the Netherlands, and he was a minor but intriguing character in Dutch soccer. This gangling flat-faced man was playmaker for a club called Sparta Rotterdam, where he tried to control games from the centre circle, because unfortunately he couldn't run. Van Gaal moved (it was said then) as if he'd swallowed an umbrella. You also saw him sometimes on TV as the opinionated union rep for Dutch soccer players.

Dimitar Berbatov and Danny Welbeck remind Man Utd. what could have been

Arsenal's horrible defending sees them concede three goals at home to Monaco, putting them in a difficult situation heading into the second leg.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley goes position by position to critique Arsenal's 'shambolic' performance against Monaco.
Two former United players, Dimitar Berbatov and Danny Welbeck, were on opposite sides of the pitch when Arsenal faced Monaco, their performances a study in contrasting fortunes.

Dimitar Berbatov is not a man given to verbal communication.

"He was so shy, I spoke three sentences to him in five years," remembers his former Bayer Leverkusen teammate Hans-Jorg Butt. "But he was superb, one of the best players I ever played with. With his potential, he could have been one of the best players in the world."

Berbatov, then 21, reached the Champions League final with the German side in 2002. In 2009 and 2011, he reached the final again with Manchester United only to lose to Barcelona....

Nani's resurgence adds pressure on Angel Di Maria at Manchester United

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden believes Louis van Gaal's downfall has been not finding a consistent lineup.

With just one goal separating the teams, a Manchester United winger cut inside and unleashed a thunderous volley from distance into the far corner of the goal. The goalkeeper stood no chance and the game was safe.

Unfortunately, that team was Sporting Lisbon and the winger was United's forgotten man, Nani. He seems to be having a better season than most of his former colleagues right now.

Nani was widely derided last month when he claimed that Manchester United wanted to keep him and that his future...

Manchester United's 10 expiring contracts: Should they stay or go?

Our experts examine which teams are the favourites to snatch a top four spot in the Premier League.
ESPN FC's Stuart Holden believes Louis van Gaal's downfall has been not finding a consistent lineup.
Former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson says David Moyes would have been sacked by now if he had been in charge of Manchester United this season.

Should they stay or should they go? ESPN FC have recently learned that Manchester United will wait until this summer before offering new deals to most of the players who will be out of contract in 2016, which begs the question: who should they try to keep, and who should they release?

Here's an assessment of the 10 players currently considering their futures, and a look at whether or not they and the club should part ways.
