Give me a ten, Fergie tells Becks

MANCHESTER: Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson has set David Beckham the target of scoring ten goals a season after watching the England captain claim his second goal in two games in the New Year’s Day win over Sunderland. 

“David should be getting 10 goals a season for us,” Ferguson told reporters after the match. 

“It is a part of his game he should be adding to because he is a good goalscorer. 

“When he came back after a little rest last season he started to score goals. 

“And though he was unfortunate with his rib injury this year, there is a great freshness about him. 

“Overall, he turned in a tremendous performance yesterday.” 

The win over Sunderland came at a price with goalkeeper Fabien Barthez forced off with a thigh strain that makes him doubtful for today's FA Cup clash with First Division leaders Portsmouth. – AFP
