Beckham's loan to Milan showed that not only could he still play with the world's best, but he could be wildly successful while doing so. His first spell in 2009 saw him fit in seamlessly with the veteran-laden Rossoneri, serving up numerous assists from his usual right midfield spot. In fact, he was good enough that Milan wanted to keep him permanently but failed to strike a deal with the Galaxy. He returned again after the conclusion of the 2009 MLS season, once again sliding into a starting role for the Serie A side. His time there was cut short, though, when early on in his stint he tore his Achilles' tendon; that day in March of 2010 would be the last time he would don a Milan jersey.
