MLS Seeking New Int'l Ambassador With Beckham's Exit; Henry Or Keane Next In Line?
Published November 29, 2012
EYEING ENGLAND? In London, Simon Rice reports Beckham has "revealed he has a number of offers on the table as he prepares to take the final step in his playing career." Regarding a return to the EPL, Beckham said that it "is unlikely." However, he "refused to rule it out." Beckham: "I've always said I think I would struggle to come back and play in England because I've played for the biggest club in the world, the biggest club in England, Manchester United, and I couldn't see myself playing for any other Premiership team. But you never know. Like I said, we've got some exciting options on the table." Speaking specifically about reported interest from EPL club Queens Park Rangers and French club Paris Saint-Germain, Beckham said that he was "flattered by the praise shown by their respective managers" (London INDEPENDENT, 11/29).
