David Beckham is convinced Ryan Giggs will be a successful Manchester United manager one day.

Beckham will grace the pitch at Old Trafford once more next month when he takes part in a charity match which aims to raise funds for UNICEF.

I have always said that Giggsy has this streak running through him that you see in top managers.

I saw it as a player. He is so determined and when you have got someone like that at a club like this, someone who is from this part of the world and knows so much about this club - it's so embedded into him - it means so much to fans, so I hope that at some point Giggsy does take over.

It might not be for the next five or 10 years but at some point it would be amazing for the fans to have him.

To have Giggsy sat on the line preparing himself to become a manager is exciting.

The former England captain said he was left with a "sick feeling" after being misled by Fifa executive committee members who pledged their support for the FA's bid to host the 2018 World Cup, which was eventually awarded to Russia.

Some of the things that we now know happened were despicable, unacceptable and awful for the game we love so much.

Whilst it has not been good to read some of the headlines surrounding our sport recently, I hope at last we are now moving in the right direction.

Football is not owned by a few individuals at the top, it belongs to the millions of people around the world who love this sport.

It is time for Fifa to change and we should all welcome it.
