The MLS icon is hanging up his Galaxy uniform, just not his interest in the game.
Following the recent announcement that David Beckham wouldn’t be back to play for the L.A. Galaxy next season, it has been rumored that Beckham could return to the team as an owner.
Hollyscoop caught up with the tatted athlete to get the scoop on what we can expect down the pipeline of our sports news feeds.
When asked about his thoughts on the new title of “owner,” David couldn’t help but hold back his enthusiasm.
“I'm finishing playing after the weekend and it's something I'm excited about,” he says. “Something that again proves my commitment to the league and the club I've become part of home of so I'm excited about.”
David has been as a loyal member of the Galaxy for six seasons now. He will play his final game in uniform at this weekend’s MLS Cup against Houston, the second consecutive championship that he’s led the L.A.-based squad to.
Earlier this month Beckham announced to the press his plans of retirement, while thanking Los Angeles fans for their continuous support.
“I will always be committed to the Galaxy I've been here for six years it's s lot like Manchester and real Madrid it becomes a home,” he says.
And, since “retirement” is such an ugly word, other than taken the reins under the new title, Beckham will stay active on the field and is considering suiting up under a different club’s logo.
“I’ve got some interesting an exciting options on the table. I'm very flattered,” he says. “I still feel I can play.”
