Beckham determined to fit in at Milan

David Beckham will work with a personal fitness coach for the rest of the year to ensure he hits the ground running when he joins up with AC Milan in January.

The midfielder, who is not included in Fabio Capello's England squad for the friendly with Germany next week, is determined to play at least some matches for the Italian giants rather than viewing his two-month loan spell as a mere training exercise.

AC Milan's Dutch midfielder Clarence Seedorf has questioned whether the 33-year-old will play even a single match, saying it all depends on his fitness.

Beckham however is determined to arrive at AC Milan in the best possible shape, to prove he is worthy of taking part in Serie A matches.

To that end, he is likely to join up with AC Milan at their post-Christmas training camp in Dubai 10 days before he was originally expected to arrive at the club.

The change to his itinerary needs to be given the green light by the Los Angeles Galaxy, but it is expected to happen.

In the weeks before that, he will work with his personal fitness trainer to ensure that he does not arrive at AC Milan out of condition.

Sources close to Beckham did not expect him to be named in Capello's squad tomorrow, believing that the England head coach wants to try out some younger players in the friendly.

They are confident from their soundings however that Beckham will be given the opportunities next year to become the most-capped outfield player for England.

Beckham needs one more cap to match Bobby Moore's record of 108 caps - though he will still be some way short of keeper Peter Shilton's tally of 125.

Rio Ferdinand believes Beckham will reach the target set by Moore, describing his former Manchester United team-mate as 'a superstar on and off the field.'

Ferdinand said: "Nobody gave him those caps for fun. It hasn't been an easy ride to get where he is now."
