Beckam: No regrets

David Beckham told Sky Sports News that he has no regrets moving to America and reiterated that he would find it difficult to play for any Premier League club other than Manchester United.

The former England skipper is currently plying his trade in the United States with Los Angeles Galaxy. And while a return to Europe had been touted after his current contract runs out at the end of the MLS season, Beckham insists he is happy with his decision to move to America.

“I have no regrets,” said Beckham on Sky Sports News. “Not one about wherever I have played and whatever I have done, I don’t think you can live your life like that.

“I always have to be sure about the decisions I have made. People may think it was the wrong decision for me to move over to America but I am fully confident with the decision I made.

“I was successful in Europe for many years; won many trophies with Manchester United and played at two of the biggest clubs in the world. I was successful at Real Madrid and I needed a new challenge – and I have enjoyed that challenge.”

The 36-year-old came close to a surprise loan move to Tottenham last season, but the deal failed to materialise as he could not face the prospect of playing for any club other than United, where he won the famous Treble in 1999 among a host of other titles.

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

“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 feel and if I feel good I will continue to play.”
