beckham-record David Beckham revealed Thursday how big an impact his move to AC Milan has had on his fitness as he underlined his desire to play on for England for as long as possible.

Beckham will break Bobby Moore’s outfield record of 108 caps for his country if he plays any part in Saturday’s friendly against Slovakia and the midfielder increasingly looks a good bet to go on and match Peter Shilton’s overall record of 125 international appearance for England.

The 33-year-old is in no doubt that he made the right move by ensuring he was able to stay at Milan until the end of this season, at which point he will return to LA Galaxy for the rest of the MLS season.

“I think it’s improved my fitness more than anything else,” Beckham said Thursday.

“I said when I first arrived in Dubai with Milan my body fat was 13.7 and now it’s 8.5 so I think it was more about the fitness side than anything else. But I had to adjust my game to the Italian game as well.

“I had to do that when I moved to Spain (to play for Real Madrid) from Manchester United and I felt it was successful there and obviously in Milan I have enjoyed that part of it.”

Beckham insisted he was not thinking about Shilton’s mark.
