Football: Juve chief slams Becks.

DAVID BECKHAM'S talents have been questioned by Juventus general director Luciano Moggi. The Manchester United midfielder lines up against the Serie A leaders in Turin tonight as Sir Alex Ferguson's side bid to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Moggi's side came off second best when the teams met at Old Trafford last week, yet he said: ``David Beckham is liked more by women than me.

``I don't think he is a phenomenal player, and I don't think he will come to Italy because he is not someone who will change your team.''

Sir Alex Ferguson has dismissed speculation that Ryan Giggs could be set for a summer move to Inter Milan. Inter president Massimo Moratti claimed that his side would be tabling a firm offer for the Welshman.

However, Ferguson doesn't believe his star winger will be going anywhere.

``We keep hearing these stories every year. Ryan Giggs is a Manchester boy and he is a Manchester United player..''
