TIRED OUTSubmitted by isport on Wed, 11/21/2012 - 17:11
The former England midfielder David Beckham has said that playing a lot of games in recent weeks for LA Galaxy has left himself extremely tired. LA Galaxy have played four games in the last 11 days, and the former Real Madrid, Manchester United, and AC Milan midfielder has admitted that age is finally catching up with him.
The 37-year-old has been extremely influential for LA Galaxy this season. He has not played for other teams on loan deals during the January transfer window, which have helped him keep in love football. However, he has admitted that it feels like having played 50 matches over the last few weeks.
David Beckham had to be substituted in the recent match between San Jose earthquakes and was seen with an ice pack later in the match. There have also been rumours that he is set to leave the club at the end of the season. He has signed a one-year rolling contract that will come to an end this season. There have been no indications that LA Galaxy are willing to offer him a new contract. The club are in a great position to lift the title once again this season, which would be a great way to leave the club for the 37-year-old.
"It feels like we've played about 50 games in the last two weeks. Who knows? I'm going to enjoy being in the play-offs... and then we'll see how this body feels. Even when I stop playing, I'll have a hunger to do something better and be the best," said David Beckham. Rumours have been intense that David Beckham will not only quit LA Galaxy, but also life in Los Angeles in order to move to New York. This would enable his wife to focus on her career in fashion.
