Soccer legend Diego Maradona has launched a vicious attack at English sports superstar David Beckham, accusing him of looking like a woman and being "too pretty" to play the game.

The ENGLAND captain is widely viewed as one of the game's greatest talents, with Spanish side Real Madrid paying Britain's Manchester United $40 million (GBP25 million) this summer (03) to secure his services - but Argentinean Maradona is sceptical of the 28-year-old's talents.

The 43-year-old, who led Argentina to WORLD CUP glory in 1986 following the notorious 'Hand of God' goal against England, says, "Beckham is too pretty for a football pitch. He's so pretty, he looks like a woman. He's a good player, but not a world star."

Maradona, promoting his new autobiography in Beijing, China, also accused Beckham of being obsessed with his wife - singer VICTORIA - and not dedicating enough time to soccer.

But Beckham isn't alone as the subject of Maradona's vitriol - during a outburst he called American President George W Bush a killer.
