MADRID -- David Beckham's bare feet, his angelic smile and the significance of the number 23 dominated Spanish coverage of the England captain's first
full day as a Real Madrid player.
El Pais led their sports section with an article headlined "Naked feet", in reference to the barefoot interviews given by Beckham on Wednesday, the
day he was officially presented as a Real Madrid player.
El Mundo played up the connection between Beckham and Michael Jordan, now the England midfielder will be wearing the number 23 shirt made famous by
the American basketball legend.
"The idea is clear: Real Madrid are working to open up the North American market, which has unlimited potential, as soon as the Asian market, with
Beckham and Ronaldo at the forefront, is dominated completely."
This guy must be popular, there is a thread on here about his hair and now they talk about his toenails?
