David Beckham has praised both Mauricio Pochettino and Tottenham Hotspur's training facilities after paying a visit to Enfield on Wednesday morning.

Beckham, who grew up close to Tottenham territory in Leytonstone, posted a photo of himself with the Spurs boss on Instagram afterwards.

And the former England captain wrote: "Great to spend the morning with Mauricio today... Thank you for welcoming me and showing me around the amazing training complex ... What a gentleman ... @spursofficial"

Pochettino is currently preparing his Tottenham players for next weekend's Champions League final tie against Liverpool at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

And as a former Manchester United player, whose grandfather was a Spurs fan, it is likely that Beckham will be backing the Argentine's team.

Beckham and Pochettino were on opposing sides as England beat Argentine 1-0 at the 2002 World Cup.
