Beckham's age no problem, says PSG's Leonardo

PARIS (AP) -- Paris Saint-Germain's sporting director Leonardo says David Beckham is not too old to play in the French league.

Leonardo worked with Beckham when the former England captain had a second loan to AC Milan last year. He says he'd welcome the chance to bring him to PSG -- which has wealthy Qatari backers and spent heavily this season.

The 36-year-old Beckham's Major League Soccer contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy expires this month, and Leonardo says he has "had contacts" with him.

In an interview with sports daily L'Equipe on Tuesday, Leonardo repeated his interest in working with Beckham again and is confident his aging legs could cope.
