To this day, former Real Madrid coach Carlos Queiroz has been unable to figure out why David Beckham and Roberto Carlos became such good friends while at the Bernabeu.
"David doesn't speak Spanish and Roberto doesn't speak English," recalled current Iran manager Queiroz. "Yet they'd speak for one hour a day, they'd spend a lot of time together. I still can't work out what they were saying."
"They were probably talking about girls," laughed a former teammate when he heard that one.
