David Beckham must be appointed Manchester United manager

David Beckham is the face of world football. No question about it. If you don't agree, you need only look at him one more time. There is nobody better to lead Manchester United than the great man himself.

Forget your trendy appointments like Louis van Gaal, Pep Guardiola, or Jurgen Klopp. Those characters are the Ford Fiestas to Beckham's Rolls Royce.

Ryan Giggs' flood of support following victory against relegation threatened Norwich City subsided somewhat with a damp performance against Sunderland. The thinking behind a 'Class of 92' manager is not a bad one, Giggs just isn't the man though.

While the Welshman is and was a great player for the Red Devils, he doesn't have the presence about him to lead the club as a manager.

Becks does, and then some....

Just look at the picture above. Now tell me that he doesn't fill that suit perfectly. He would prowl down the touchline like a majestic big cat in the African desert. 

The prey at Old Trafford would lie down and take their punishment from Becks' pride with just one serious smolder of discontent. 

Okay so you might think this is all a bit Utopian. Let me guide you through the logistics.

The 39-year-old - having celebrated his birthday on Friday - is looking at getting his own Major League Soccer franchise. Please David... you warrant a place in football's top league.

Nevertheless, his foray into the management world is an encouraging sign. Tired of delivering inch-perfect beautiful crosses, 'Golden balls' is ready to settle down and sit in his golden throne. 

If a lack of managerial experience isn't a problem for Giggs, it won't be for Beckham either. 

United's new dawn after the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson has proved itself to be a frosty nightmare. The sacking of David Moyes put the icing upon a very sour-tasting cake at Old Trafford.  It means that the club are without Champions League football, and fears are rumbling over the red side of Manchester that the best players aren't up for it.

But would a top quality player reject Beckham? - Not a chance, don't worry, David's in charge. 

Furthermore, Beckham's globe trotting since leaving England has lead him to footballing hot-beds Madrid, Milan, Paris and er... Los Angeles. His travelling would have put him in touch with the game's greatest names. He must have a glistening contacts book.

The best coaches, the best sponsors, the best players and the best friends. He could have it all at United.

Player discontent rocked the boat towards the Moyes' last days, performances were void of any passion, quite frankly, it was rubbish. Not even the most disruptive and arrogant of 'superstars' would cross Beckham though.

If United played with the same sexiness as David - they would romp to the title in a flash. All the grumbles and mumbles would be replaced with shining beaming grins.

The only problem I could ever perceive is a influx of divorces around the world for United fans, who, would look at their other half and think... 'they just aren't David'.

This is unfortunate, but as Bill Shankly once said; Football is a far bigger deal than life and death. So spouses might just have to accept it and move on - you aren't going to be better than David, just accept it. 

Unite Red Devil fans! You know you want this, go and make your feelings known.
