Beckham joins former United teammates with stake in Salford

MANCHESTER, England (AP) David Beckham has joined some of his former Manchester United teammates by investing in fifth-tier English team Salford.

The move comes five years after Gary and Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt first bought a stake in the non-league team, which is located less than eight kilometers (five miles) from United's Old Trafford.

The former United players are members of the so-called "Class of 92 " who graduated from the academy and won trophies under Alex Ferguson.
