Beckham would 'love' United sporting director role

The star has been linked with moves to QPR and Spurs, but may turn them down in favour of a return to his former club.

DAVID BECKHAM HAS expressed hope that he will one day return to his former club Man United, as he eyes a sporting director role.

The LA Galaxy star has been linked to both QPR and Spurs once his current contract expires, but he could reject these options in favour of an ambassadorial role at the club where he spent ten years of his professional career.

Speaking to The Sun, when asked if he would like to follow a similar path to his former teammate Zinedine Zidane, who is a sporting director at Real Madrid, Beckham said: “I would love to do that,” before adding:

“The best memory of my career came in 1999, no doubt, when Manchester United won the treble.”

The player made 265 Premier League appearances for United, and scored 61 goals during his time at the club.
