Pirlo predicts successful stint for Beckham

Italy midfielder Andrea Pirlo is certain David Beckham has what it takes to be a success in Serie A after joining AC Milan on a short-term loan from LA Galaxy. "He's intelligent, he strikes the ball well with his feet, he has sense of position," Pirlo told La Gazzetta dello Sport from Milan's winter training camp in Dubai. "He does not lack anything to do well in Italy."
