Beckham: Being at Milan makes me far fitter

David Beckham has outlined how his England career had benefited from his loan move to the San Siro. Speaking ahead of England's friendly with Slovakia, he said: "Obviously being at AC Milan now gives me more of a chance to be at that higher level to play at international level which is always important. But we'll see. I'm enjoying being with the squad at the moment and hopefully it continues."

"I think it's improved my fitness more than anything else," he said. "I said when I first arrived in Dubai with Milan my body fat was 13.7 and now it's 8.5 so I think it was more about the fitness side than anything else. But I had to adjust my game to the Italian game as well.

"I had to do that when I moved to Spain (to play for Real Madrid) from Manchester United and I felt it was successful therer and obviously in Milan I have enjoyed that part of it."

He also insisted every England cap he now receives is "a bonus."

The former captain will win his 109th cap, breaking Bobby Moore's record for an outfield player if he features in the friendly against Slovakia at Wembley on Saturday.

"Every time I meet up with England, obviously it's a huge honour," Beckham said.

"Every player feels like that when they meet up with the squad. But to be on the amount of caps and the games that I am at the moment, it's a great honour for me.

"I think that every time that I personally meet up with the team it's a bonus because being on probably 94, 95 caps I never expected to make 100. Making 100 people expected me to retire then, so to be on 108 now and hopefully get to 109, I'm happy with that."

The former Manchester United midfielder still has some way to go to surpass Peter Shilton's 125 appearances, and Beckham claims he is not giving that record any thought.

"I am not looking at that record at all at the moment," said the 33-year-old. "I take each game as it comes as I know know quickly it can change.
