Football icon promises big reveal next week regarding a franchise in US soccer league...
David Beckham has promised that he'll be making an "exciting announcement" next week regarding America's Major League Soccer.
The former England and Manchester United star, who played for LA Galaxy in the later stage of his career, has previously been rumoured to be planning to launch his own MLS franchise.
And he has now told Extra: "I've got an exciting announcement coming up next week which I'm really excited about.
"A little hint? It involves the MLS and my involvement in the game in America, it involves my ownership of a franchise, something I'm excited about."
But he ruled out any possibility of going into team management himself when asked the question.
"Would I go into coaching? No. I mean, I love coaching kids, but coaching a professional team has never really interested me, but to be an owner would be kind of incredible."
Becks is rumoured to be set to announce the creation of a new MLS team based in Miami.
A statement from the MLS said: "Major League Soccer commissioner Don Garber and David Beckham will make a significant announcement impacting the Miami community. They will be joined by Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A Gimenez."
