Hargreaves said: “If David plays like he did against us then he can play his way back into any team.
“It was great to see him back again and I’ve always said anyone who writes off Becks is mad.
“He has such exceptional ability and is an exceptional passer and he showed that again.
“He was Real’s most influential player against us by a country mile. Every chance seemed to come from his set-pieces or passes.
“Becks completely controlled the flow of the game, especially in the first half. He was the key player basically in all their moves.”
