BECKHAM STILL LOVED
David Beckham retired over 6 months ago as he played his last professional match with PSG as they played against Brest and he was made captain before receiving a standing ovation from fans and leaving the pitch after 80 minutes.
The English midfielder however wants to continue playing a role in football and wants to secure his MLS franchise before the New Year. He has a tight deadline to finalise his team in Miami as the MLS have put in place a deadline of December 31.
The MLS are offering the deal at a budget rate of £15m, which will then increase. So Beckham is keen to put together his proposal which includes sponsors, stadium and business plan.
Beckham said: “Hopefully there will be an announcement before the new year.
“We haven’t announced that it’s definitely going to be Miami yet but obviously I’ve been seen in Miami quite a few times. We’re getting the details right at the moment. ”
David Beckham still stays close to the world of football not only in his decision to purchase the MLS franchise but also attended the premier of ‘’The Class of 92’’ in London’s Leicester Square which is a film that documents the rise of Fergie’s Fledglings and focuses on the achievements of Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes, and the Neville brothers.
The retired football star was interviewed about the current situation of his former club Manchester United and he is hopeful that the Premier League club will retain the title.
Beckham said: "I believe they've got a great manager, they still have the players they had last year when they became champions, so there's no reason they can’t do it again."
