Beckham Hints At Comeback

David Beckham has signaled that he may return to the football pitch as a player for his new Major League Soccer franchise in Miami.

After only one year in retirement, Beckham discussed his yearning to perform as a top-flight athlete again while shooting David Beckham: Into the Unknown, a new documentary to air on BBC One.

"There's never been a player-owner but maybe," Beckham said.

"Now I go to watch a basketball game, and when you are watching athletes play at the top of their game, it gives me that itch again and I want to be back in the game.

"I start thinking to myself 'Could I play again? Could I go back? Could I come out of retirement and start playing again?'"

Beckham was capped 115 times for England, and played for Manchester United, Real Madrid, Los Angeles Galaxy, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain at the club level, winning domestic honors with each team.

The 39-year-old's proposed startup club in Miami is expected to start competing in 2016 or 2017.
