Sir Alex Ferguson was David Beckham's manager for most of his Premiership career before moving to Real Madrid. Fergie said Beckham may have lost focus following his marriage to Posh, "the girl from the Spice Girls,".

David Beckham became England's most-capped outfield player before the midfielder's departure from Old Trafford in 2003. Beckham won one La Liga title in four years in Madrid before moving to the United States for a new chapter in his career.

In an interview with PBS, Sir Alex Ferguson said Beckham was subject to a change in "celebrity status" after marrying.

"As a young kid when I got him at 12 years of age his great desire was [to play] some of the best football," Ferguson said in a transcript of the PBS interview published by The Times.

"He was a fantastic trainer, practiced all the time. At nighttime he would come by with the schoolboys and practice with them. And he was in that collection. And then of course, his life changed, when he married the girl from The Spice Girls, yeah. And his focus changed.

"He got drawn into the - that celebrity status, you know? And for me, I'm a football man. I'm a football man. He lost the focus. And when we sold him to Real Madrid, he did well."

"I couldn't believe that he goes to LA Galaxy. I couldn't believe that. I couldn't understand that. I would never do that, you know? If I was going to go, I would be making sure he would go to the best, and Real Madrid was the best, I would say, and United."But he reinvented himself. He goes and plays for the English national team for a couple more years. He goes and plays for AC Milan [in the] European Cup. He's unbelievable. He really is - and good, well done to him. You can't argue with the status he has in life."

Beckham retired from football at the end of last season at the age of 38 following a short spell at Paris St. Germaine.

"Well, for me, it would have pleased me more to see him be a great, great player, you know?" Ferguson added.

"As I said, I'm a football man. But how can I argue with life? He's an icon for young people... and represents himself the proper way. And I say well done.

"Amazing boy, yeah. I mean, how he has created himself. He's fantastic. Wonderful boy."

A repeat of Chelsea's second-half performance at Old Trafford was enough to book a place in the FA Cup semi-finals against EPL giants Manchester City as well.

Torres was a substitute as Chelsea battled back from two goals down against Manchester United to earn the replay.

'Against Man United it was a great comeback and a great second-half performance,' said the 29-year-old.

Chelsea approached their replay against United as the second half of the first game, recreating the same intensity and spirit Chelsea displayed at Old Trafford and moving through to the FA Cup semi-finals.

'There is another game at Wembley waiting and a great team, Manchester City, waiting for us. It's a difficult route but if we beat Man United and then City, we will deserve to win because we have beaten the best teams in England.

Torres has the desire to secure a top four Premier League position so Chelsea can be back in the Champions League competition next season. Chelsea are currently in 3rd place in the Premier League table behind Manchester United in 1st place, and Manchester City in 2nd place.

"We need to be ready," said Torres.

'The finals are not far away... so let's go for it.'

'This is the final part of the race, we have everything still to play for and it depends on us,' Torres said.
