City boss denies move for ex-Old Trafford superstar

Leicester City manager Sven Goran-Eriksson has rejected suggestions he is attempting to bring former Manchester United midfielder David Beckham to the King Power Stadium.

"If he wants to come, he is welcome, but I don't know where that has come from," Eriksson told reporters.

"I have not spoken to him recently and it is nothing we have been working on now."

It had been claimed the former Manchester City boss was keen to be reunited with Beckham, with the LA Galaxy star appointed England captain during Eriksson's reign as England boss.

There is, though, it would seem little substance in these reports, and it would surely be unlikely that Beckham would consider joining the Foxes - even if they were promoted to the Barclays Premier League.

The 36-year-old, who has also had spells with Real Madrid and AC Milan, has previously stated he would only want to rejoin United - should he come back to England - despite previous interest from Tottenham.


"I have always said that Manchester United is my one love and to play for another Premier League team would be difficult for me," he said.

"We are very happy in America as a family and we have been for the last five years.

"We love England and we miss it, of course, but as for myself playing back there? I don't know.

"Things change so quickly and right now I am playing for Galaxy.

"I will look at myself at the end of the season, see how my body feels and if I feel good I will continue to play."

Beckham spent 10 years in the United first team under Sir Alex Ferguson, before leaving Old Trafford for the Bernabeu in 2003.
