When David Beckham stunned the soccer world by leaving Europe for Major League Soccer six years ago, he characterized the move not as an end to an unparalleled playing career but as the start of a new chapter.
Monday, he decided it’s time to close the book on that chapter, saying that next month’s MLS Cup final at the Home Depot Center will be his last competitive game with the Galaxy. Beckham, who avoided using the word “retirement,” has recently received feelers from teams in Australia, but he almost certainly will not play in MLS again. He is expected to stay with the league in a front-office capacity, perhaps with the Galaxy.
Poor Beckham – more money than God, and a smoking hot wife to retire to. God is must be sweet to be an athlete. You better believe we haven’t heard the last from Beckham. He’s got a Favre-like feel to him. I will say this; the guy did great things for Major League Soccer. Deuces
