There has been a lot of speculation over the past couple of months regarding the future of former England midfielder David Beckham, since his contract with LA Galaxy ended. It seemed at one point that David would be joining the French club Paris Saint-Germain but he rejected the move for family reasons. Now David has signed a two year extension with his American club.
Beckham explained, "This was an important decision for me. I had many offers from clubs from around the world, however, I'm still passionate about playing in America and winning trophies with the Galaxy. I've seen first-hand how popular soccer is now in the States and I'm as committed as ever to growing the game here. My family and I are incredibly happy and settled in America and we look forward to spending many more years here."
Bruce Arena, the head coach at LA Galaxy, added, "I am thrilled that David has chosen to rejoin the Galaxy, especially as he had numerous options where he could continue his career. I felt that he was one of the best players in all of MLS last season and we could not have achieved the success that we did without him. We look forward to trying to replicate that success this season with David once again in a Galaxy uniform." David Beckham will be hoping to make the Great Britain Olympic football team for the London 2012 Olympics.
