LA Galaxy’s English midfielder David Beckham has revealed that he would, not only like to be selected for the Great Britain football team for the London 2012 Olympics, but that he would also love to be the captain of the squad. David recently signed a new two year deal with US club LA Galaxy and had it written into his contract that he could participate at the London 2012 Olympics.
Beckham explained, "I would love to be captain. I have led my country before and know how special it would be to lead them into the Olympics. I've had conversations with Stuart Pearce, but not been selected. I would love to be part of Team GB.” David then went on to discuss the new two year deal that he has just signed with LA Galaxy.
He added, "I still feel young and I will continue to play as long as I can. I love it. I enjoy training, I enjoy games, I enjoy being part of a team. My new contract will take me up to almost 39 and then we will see." David Beckham turned down the chance to join mega rich French club Paris Saint-Germain in favour of staying in the US.
