He went on to play 159 games for Los Blancos, registering 20 goals and 52 assists and winning the LaLiga title in 2007.

That era of stars at Real Madrid were often referred to as the “Galacticos”, with Beckham sharing the pitch alongside the likes of Ronaldo, Zinedine Zidane, Raul, Luis Figo, Roberto Carlos and more.

And four of those icons were pictured back at the Bernabeu to commemorate ex-Brazil striker Ronaldo‘s 47th birthday – which was on Monday.

Beckham posed for a snap alongside Carlos, Figo and Ronaldo by the side of the Real Madrid pitch.

And the image received huge adulation on social media.

Real Madrid tweeted the picture alongside the caption: “Too many legends in one photo… .”

In response, one person said: “Our legends.”

Another added: “This too is legendary.”

While a third replied: “The best legends in the best club .”

Astonishingly, Real Madrid did not win anything during Beckham’s first three seasons at the club.

Figo left for Inter Milan in 2005, before Beckham, Ronaldo and Carlos went on to claim the LaLiga title two years later.

All three of them departed the Bernabeu after that triumph, with Beckham joining LA Galaxy, Carlos signing for Fenerbahce and Ronaldo agreeing a deal with AC Milan.
