Owner Says David Beckham Will Not Join A-League Club Perth Glory

Australian A-League Perth Glory Owner TONY SAGE "has given up hope of luring DAVID BECKHAM to Australia following a chance meeting with the former England captain in London this week," according to the PA. Sage bumped into Beckham at the premier of the Spice Girls-inspired stage show "Viva Forever" at London's O2 Arena and revealed that "he had been rebuffed when asked if a move Down Under was possible." Sage said, "I got the chance to chat to David, and of course I asked him about coming to Australia." He looked me in the eye and basically said, "That would be nice, but it's too far away from my businesses" (PA, 12/14).
