FERGIE TAKES A POP AT POSH OVER BECKHAM; He says she ruined him.

Byline: GARY JONES

ALEX Ferguson last night blamed Posh Spice for his fall-out with David Beckham.

The Scots manager of Manchester United sold the midfield maestro to Real Madrid for pounds 25million this week.

But he said he got the best out of Becks before former pop star Victoria appeared on the scene.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated magazine, Fergie said: "He was blessed with great stamina, the best of all the players I've had here.

"After training, he'd always be practising, practising, practising. But his life changed when he met his wife.

"She's in pop and David got another image. He's developed this `fashion thing'. I saw his transition to a different person.''

Ferguson guided England captain Beckham through the ranks at Old Trafford.

But the 61-year-old became irritated by Beckham's celebrity lifestyle and had kept him on the bench for several important matches towards the end of last season.

In a move that would have enraged Fergie further, Victoria revealed the sex symbol's girlie secrets yesterday.

Speaking on a publicity tour of Japan, she revealed Becks loves having his eyebrows plucked, dips into her moisturiser and enjoys a facial.

The couple were launching Posh's new moisturiser - Victoria's Style - which costs an incredible pounds 175 a pot.

Giggling Victoria said: "I have to say David's been using the cream as well.

"I'm sure there are lots of people who would love to feel how soft his skin is. His skin is like our baby's.

"I know David loves to have facials and massages. He also likes to get his eyebrows plucked."

Meanwhile, the couple turned down a new Beckingham Palace just a short walk from Spain's version of Buckingham Palace. The couple refused to splash out pounds 2million on this palacete - Spanish for "little palace" .

The eight-bedroom house, La Murta, is half a mile from King Juan Carlos's Zarzuela Palace and has its own swimming pool .

But it's thought the couple have their eye on another mansion in swanky La Moraleja, which is closer to the school they have chosen for Brooklyn.

Meanwhile, David's dad, Ted, revealed that he wanted his son to stay in England. Ted said: "He was happy at United and I am upset that he is leaving."
