David Beckham or Gary Neville? Nottingham Forest star Ben Osborn would rather be the latter

The midfielder would prefer to be the right-back over the former England captain.

If you had to choose between the former Manchester United players Gary Neville or David Beckham. who would you be?

Most people would say Beckham.

He captained his national team, has millions of adoring fans worldwide and. let's face it, he isn't a bad looking bloke is he?

But for some it is his mate and former right-hand side partner Neville who would be the preferred choice. Including Nottingham Forest midfielder Ben Osborn.

He sent out this tweet recently:

On a footballing basis, it is fair to say that Neville might have been superior to Becks. He was a fantastic right-back with a cross that rivaled his more recognisable team-mates. But Osborn, as a midfielder in the Forest first-team, might have been expected to opt with Beckham for that reason.

But Neville has certainly stayed in the game since retirement.

A pundit on Sky Sports, coach with the England team and a part owner of Salford City FC - perhaps it is his post-playing career that Forest midfielder Osborn finds more enviable than that of Becks.
