David Beckham Washington, Feb 25 (ANI): Ace midfielder David Beckham, who was training with Tottenham Hotspur for the past six weeks to get fit for the start of the new Major League Soccer season, has finally returned to the Los Angeles Galaxy’s training camp.

Beckham returned to training on Thursday following an extended stay to train with Tottenham.

Beckham, whose contract with Galaxy expires in November, spent the past six weeks training with English side Tottenham, Xinhua reports,

He said he is now shifting his focus to helping the Galaxy get off to a good start this season.

“I could have been sitting on a beach somewhere, which obviously was an option,” Beckham.

“I am happy to be back and I am happy to see some sun. I only missed a few weeks with the lads here but it was important for my fitness that I continue with my (training) level there and come back fitter than I was last season,” he added.

Due to injuries and commitments overseas, Beckham played just seven games with the southern California team last season. (ANI)
