Report: Bieber Wants Soccer Team With David Beckham and One Direction

File this under, weirdest collaboration ever!

Justin Bieber wants to start a celebrity soccer league (or football, if you’re from across the pond) similar to the celebrity league created by soccer legends Robbie Williams and Vinnie Jones.

The "Boyfriend" singer says that he’s been getting really into soccer lately and has incited David Beckham to coach and wants the dudes of One Direction to play on the team.

“I’ve been playing a lot of soccer over the last two or three years, I’ve been really enjoying it,” says Bieber, “I know there’s an LA celebrity team that Robbie Williams was in, but I am looking to start a team for the younger guys. The One Direction guys said that they’ll play and also Lil Bow Wow, but there’s only one guy we want to coach the team and that is David Beckham.”

Since Beckham didn’t get asked to join the British Olympic soccer team, he’s obviously got a lot of free time to coach Bieber, Bow Wow and the One Direction boys. Oh, and Bieber wants the soccer team to be all members of young Hollywood.

Biebs is so confident he’ll nab Beckham, he told UK Mag The Daily Star, “I am going to personally ask David myself and I’m really hoping he will say yes.”

Bieber even wants to get the first ladies involved in the process, “I was going to ask my girl Selena and Victoria is they wanted to be cheerleaders for us.”

Ok, now I feel like this interview is made up or Bieber is playing a massive joke on all of us. Victoria Beckham cheerleading is like Victoria Beckham smiling...not gonna happen.

Only time will tell if this celebrity soccer team is real. One thing is sure, those soccer games would sell out FAST!
