Beckham Confirms Miami Deal, Says Former Teammates Ready To Sign Up

David Beckham "dangled the prospect of superstars joining" his new Miami Major League Soccer team, according to Richard Luscombe of the London GUARDIAN. Backham said, "Who wouldn't want to play in Miami, live in Miami? I’m getting messages saying, ‘When’s it happening? When can we get there?’ I know this city is ready for football.” Beckham declined to name names, saying it would be "disrespectful." As MLS Commissioner Don Garber welcomed the former England captain's formal acceptance of the franchise, Beckham "presented his vision for the future of professional soccer in Miami." Beckham said it is “a deeply personal project, I want to make it my own team.” He promised "some of the world’s greatest players, a top-class coach, a Kids Academy to develop the stars of tomorrow, and a successful and community-focused club" in the heart of downtown Miami (GUARDIAN, 2/5)
