TikTok superstar Noah Beck has revealed his favourite Premier League football team when asked by fellow influencer Josh Ryan. After starring in this year’s Soccer Aid, Beck was asked to name the best team in England’s top flight. And his answer came in a heartbeat: Manchester United.
When asked if he was sure, Beck smiled and said, ‘No, but they’re my favourite team.’
There is no doubt that United are currently struggling, finishing last season in sixth place and in the midst of a rebuild still to get started.
New manager Erik Ten Hag arrived this summer but is yet to sign any new players. But one current great has clearly made his mark on Beck.
Who is Noah Beck’s favourite footballer?
Answering a question about his favourite player, the 21-year-old said, ‘(Cristiano) Ronaldo,’ going on to say that the Portuguese trumps Lionel Messi in his opinion.
The duo have a famous long-term rivalry as football fans across the globe discuss who is the ultimate football GOAT. For Beck, that player is clearly Ronaldo.

Beck appears to be enjoying the conversation that his brief interview has caused. He filmed a TikTok wearing United’s iconic black away strip that they wore during some famous victories – including that 4-2 win over Arsenal.
The video prompted lots of clamours for Beck to sign for United after his showing at Soccer Aid. Given the club’s lack of signings so far, it may not be the daftest suggestion.
United have been locked in a transfer saga for Frankie de Jong for over a month now. Beck would come a lot cheaper than the Dutch international but, jokes aside, Beck clearly loves United and is enjoying spreading that love among his followers.
Noah Beck is no stranger to football
Anyone who watched Soccer Aid earlier this month will have been impressed by Beck’s talent. He was namechecked countless times prior to kick-off as one to watch. But it was still a surprise when he bossed much of the game with his confidence on the ball, long-range passing and finishing.
Indeed, Beck scored for the World XI from the penalty spot to make it 1-0 but England roared back to 2-1. A mistake ensured the game finished 2-2 after 90 minutes, before Lee Mack converted the winning spot kick in the shootout to leave the hosts disappointed.
Beck was one of the best players on the pitch, often outshining some of the former pros. But, when you consider his past, that makes sense.
Who did Noah Beck play for?
Beck may now be a huge TikTok star but, in his teens, football looked to be his destiny. He skippered the US Youth Soccer Olympic Development Program for three years from 2014 to 2017.
He was the top-scorer for the ODP and went on to play in Costa Rica for Region IV and Real Salt Lake Academy’s youth team. Finally, he featured for Portland Pilots and, were it not for TikTok, he may be playing in the same league as Ronaldo now.
Not many celebrities can genuinely use Soccer Aid as an audition but Noah Beck will have caught the eye of many a Premier League club.
Instead, he is enjoying life as a social media influencer while still dipping his toe into football.
Given his performance this year, expect Beck to be back playing for the World XI for many years to come. Who knows, he may even come up against Ronaldo when the United great finally retires.
