A guy who played and won things for Man Utd and Real Madrid isn't iconic?
He also played for AC Milan and PSG.
Beckham was a great player who done far more in the game than many other English players who would definitely be considered iconic.
Everyones entitled to their opinion but without checking their stats I reckon Beckham achieved much more in the game than Cantona who I reckon was pretty over rated (my opinion). Beckam played for the biggest clubs in football for a reason.
You could argue Beckham performed better at a higher level for Man Utd and country than Cantona ever did.
Beckham was a phenomenal player, he would have been a starter for any club side in world football, Barca tried everything to sign him, he opted for Madrid an played alongside Zidane, Raul, Figo etc, he also played for Milan and PSG.
My comment was regarding him as the No.7 for Man Utd and I wouldn't put him in the same bracket as Ronaldo or Cantona. I didn't say he wasn't a decent player.
I also wouldn't put him anywhere near Paul Scholes, Frank Lampard or Steven Gerrard and they didn't win anything for Real Madrid?
I'm interested to know the players he was better than that you would class as Iconic??
I think plenty of Man Utd fans would disagree with you.
