Chelsea favourite expects Beckham switch

Published Add your comment

David Beckham is ready to leave the MLS and sign for Paris St Germain, according to former LA Galaxy manager Ruud Gullit.

The former England captain, who is in the final year of his deal at the Galaxy is expected to move back to Europe for his final hurrah before hanging up his boots.

And former Chelsea boss Gullit says a move to big spending PSG would be a viable option for the 36-year-old.

“Paris Saint-Germain is a great club with an ambitious project so that would be a very good and interesting move for him. I know how he thinks, he will want the challenge,” said Gullit.

“Beckham is obsessed with football and in Los Angeles there is no football culture, they care about other things.


“They don't care about football – I found that hard and I think David would as well. It was strange for me to be in a situation where people didn't care about the biggest game in the world.

“There are other emerging leagues where he could play but I think he is still good enough to play in a strong European league and in the European competitions.”

After taking Chelsea to the 1997 FA Cup, Gullit endured some difficult times as a manager with Newcastle United and Feyenoord, before eventually joining the Galaxy.

However the ex-Chelsea player-manager failed to last a year, and resigned citing personal reasons, before a six month spell with Terek Grozny ended in June of this year.
