Former England international David Beckham returned to Major League Soccer side Los Angeles Galaxy yesterday, taking part in a training session with his old team-mates, as he continues his relationship with California.
Beckham spent six years with the Galaxy after leaving Real Madrid for LA in 2007, helping MLS grow to become America's third most attended sports league in 2012.
The 38-year-old donned a pair of pink boots to join Bruce Arena's side for training yesterday morning, alongside former colleagues Robbie Keane, Landon Donovan and Carlo Cudicini.
Galaxy boss Bruce Arena joked that he may consider resigning Enland's all-time record caps holder in an outfield position, while declaring that former Galaxy skipper's surprise appearance was a welcome boost to his team.
He told the club's official website: "He's got to work on his crossing, on his passing a little bit. If he can get better in those areas, we would consider signing him.
"It was fun. He’s great. It brings a good karma to the group," Arena continued, this time, sincerely.
"It’s always wonderful to see David. It was great for the years that he was here and the fact that he still stays in touch is very important to our team and our organization."
Beckham retired from competitive action in May, playing his last match with Paris Saint-Germain during a loan spell in the French capital.
