David Beckham told the Associated Press today that he plans to return to Los Angeles next year, finishing out his five year contract. He also said that he still hopes to play for England again. His plans for after the contract is up are at this point unknown.â†µ
“I want to play as long as my legs can take me,” he said. “I know it sounds a cliche, but I love playing soccer, I love playing the game, it’s my passion. When I stop enjoying it then I’ll know I need to stop.”â†µ
Beckham’s five year contract is worth $32.5 million dollars. It’s taken four years with the LA Galaxy to bring home a trophy (the Supporter’s Shield), although they did make the Cup Final last season. After a well documented rough start (a book was written about it) Landon Donovan and David Beckham have managed to institute a winning tradition in Los Angeles once again.
