Tuesday, October 4, 2011
LEICESTER, England (AP) -- Former England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson says he has offered David Beckham a chance to join English Championship club Leicester.
Beckham's Major League Soccer contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy is set to expire in November and Eriksson, now in charge at Leicester, says he has discussed a possible linkup with the 36-year-old midfielder.
Eriksson says he has "already had that discussion with him. I spoke to him about Leicester" adding "Beckham, he will never say no to me -- he says, 'Sven, we'll see. We'll see.'"
Beckham has also been linked with Premier League clubs Tottenham and Queens Park Rangers, as well as French side Paris Saint-Germain.
Eriksson said the former England captain could combine playing for Leicester with a coaching role.
