With ex-teammate Phil Neville at the helm, the former England skipper has great expectations but claims his team has not yet achieved its goals.

Inter Miami has struggled to live up to the hype in their first two years in

Major League Soccer

, but David Beckham, a former Manchester United and Real Madrid legend say he is still proud of how far they have gone. 

The former Three Lions captain has been instrumental in the expansion team's entry into MLS, but his squad has failed to generate success on the field. 

With old teammate

in charge, Beckham is optimistic that they might improve, although he is well aware that they have failed to live up to expectations in recent seasons.

"I have had to learn to have a little bit more patience, which my wife will tell you I don't really have that much of," Beckham told the 

Daily Mail 

ahead of Miami's clash with Chicago Fire. "But as an owner, and someone that has high expectations, you have to have a little bit.

"I've needed it over the last eight years to bring this club into this great city and into this league. In the last two years, I have had to learn to have even more.

"Everybody knows the expectations and pressures that we have. Yes, the last couple of years haven't lived up to exactly what we wanted, but I think when we step back and look at the last eight years, I'm very proud of what we've achieved."

The Miami owner has continued a friendship that dates back to when the two were youngsters by choosing Neville, a former United and England teammate as well as the former


manager who led the squad to a World Cup semi-final finish.

'His professionalism, hard work, his commitment, for me, was one of the biggest reasons in bringing him into this club," he added. "Stability is important and of course, we need to be successful on the field.

"When you look at the great clubs around the world - Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool - the work that Jurgen Klopp has done within Liverpool behind the scenes is one of the reasons why they're so successful on the field.

"That's why I think the work that Phil has done has been incredible - but talking about us as friends, we'll always be friends, no matter what happens."
