JT won't leave Chelsea - Becks

Published Add your comment

David Beckham does not believe England captain John Terry will move from Chelsea to Manchester City.

City have been pursuing centre-back Terry all summer to add steel to their defence as part of their multi-million pound revolution.

"It won't be about money for him. At the end of the day, he's England captain and you don't become England captain being greedy. You become it because you're passionate about the game," said Beckham.

"Happiness is the biggest thing. If you've got passion to play for the club you're at, and if you're at the club you always wanted to be at, then that goes beyond any money.

"JT's like that. He's passionate about football, not passionate about money. He'll decide what's best for his football career."

"I don't think JT will move because he's Chelsea through and through. But football's football. It's a business. But I think he'll stay at Chelsea because they won't want to lose him."

Beckham was himself criticised for for joining the Los Angeles Galaxy as many speculated money was a motivating factor for his trans-Atlantic move.

Before that, the midfielder had to endure moving Manchester United to Real Madrid after a falling-out with manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

"I always wanted to stay at United for my whole career but there was nothing I could have done about it," he said. "It wasn't in my hands when I left United.

"I missed it. I couldn't even bear to watch them on the TV for the first three years after leaving just because it hurt me a lot."
