Beckham denies A-League move

Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder David Beckham has dismissed suggestions he is set to make a short-term move to the A-League.

Football Federation Australia claimed on Friday that Beckham’s management approached them about possibly playing in Australia during the Major League Soccer off-season.

However, a spokesperson for the former England captain denied those reports, and Beckham today revealed he had no knowledge of the talks at a press conference in the United States.

“No. Definitely not true,” he told reporters at the Home Depot Center. “Bruce (Galaxy coach Bruce Arena) told me that this morning – the first I’d heard about it. Like I said that’s the first I’d heard of that, this morning.”

Arena, who was present at the press conference, jokingly added: “We’ve booked his tickets already.”

LA Galaxy play the Seattle Sounders in the second leg of the Western Conference final on Sunday.

The Galaxy lead 3-0 from the opening leg.
