He’s sure Man United fans are pleased that the season is coming to an end after a ‘tough’ campaign.

Their crushing 4-0 loss at Brighton last weekend leaves the Red Devils languishing in sixth place, with Beckham admitting changes need to be made.

“There’s changes to be made and changes that are happening and we’ve seen that,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’s a tough end to the season but it is the end of the season. I’m sure a lot of the fans are thankful of that because it’s been a tough one.

“It’s been full of ups and downs, the players have done what they can do best and so has the manager as well.

“But you still turn up at the stadium, I turned up at the stadium a few months back and every seat is filled so the fans still believe, the fans still support. The fans would always turn up for the team because it’s what the United fans do.

“There’s not many other teams that have gone through what they’ve gone through in the last few years and still filling out their stadium. That says a lot about the fans, [it] says a lot about what they believe in and there will be changes.”

Beckham also hopes Ronaldo stays at Old Trafford amid mounting speculation over his future.

The 37-year-old has been integral for Man United this term, scoring 24 goals in all competitions.

The former England captain added: “Obviously Cristiano is one of the best players over the last 15 years with Lio [Lionel Messi]. To see him stay on, hopefully staying on at United, is important for the fans.

“I think it’s important to him, we all know how much Man Utd means to him and he’s still doing what he does best – scoring goals and creating.

“That’s what Cristiano does and even at his age, to be doing what he’s doing, is really incredible so hopefully it continues and hopefully he stays for another year or two.”
