Man Utd signing Neville similar to Beckham claims Valencia coach
Manchester United have completed the signing of youngster Harry Neville, who is being compared to David Beckham for his talent.
The young Neville is the son of former Manchester United legend Phil Neville. He joined after a brief spell at Valencia's academy.
And his crossing ability is one of the reasons why many are comparing him to Beckham, who was known for his ability to bend the football from wide areas.
His academy coach at Valencia, Emesron Esteve, had the following to say about the kid.
"Being aware that he is still very young and he has much to improve, he has similar characteristics to Beckham," he told the Manchester Evening News.
"He's a fast player, has a good capacity to cross from the line and is hard-working.
"Football is so difficult, you know, but if he keeps his effort and dream, I'm sure that he could have a good career as a player. I hope so because he really deserves it."
