David Beckham bid to play in A-League confirmed by FFA
FOOTBALL Federation Australia has confirmed it has received an approach by an agent representing the management of former England captain David Beckham for him to play in the A-League for the rest of this season.
Discussions are at an early stage and FFA is exploring the options available.
"The approach from David Beckham's people is another sign of how much the Hyundai A-League has grown in stature on a global basis," an FFA spokesman said.
"Beckham is superstar on the world stage and he would be another massive signing for the Hyundai A-League after the arrivals of Alessandro Del Piero, Emile Heskey and Shinji Ono. But this approach remains at a very preliminary stage."
Reports emerged yesterday Beckham had been offered to a number of A-League clubs about the possibility of a potential 10-game guest stint.
Beckham's five-year deal with LA Galaxy in the Major Soccer League in America ends in a fortnight and then he could make his way Down Under.
