Management is not something I am passionate about, says Beckham

David Beckham London, July 15(ANI): England midfielder David Beckham has said that he would never manage the England squad.

Beckham was an unofficial member of manager Fabio Capello’s staff at the World Cup in South Africa, after injury ruled him out of the tournament.

His coaching role had led to suggestions that the LA Galaxy star would one day move into management.

“Management is not something I am passionate about and it is not something I have thought about. I love coaching kids, people know I love coaching kids, but being a manager - no,” the BBC quoted Beckham, as saying.

“I have other interests that I want to fulfil before anything else. I don’t think anything that happen on the field makes the 2018 bid suffer.”

“Then again, when I stop playing I still want to be involved in football in some way, but I don’t think it will be as a manager,” he added.

The 35-year-old further remains keen to regain his own place to play at the 2012 European Championships.

“I hope to play this season for England and I’ve always said that I’ll be available. I’m not ready to step aside, but if I don’t get picked again then I am very proud of my record - 100 starts in 115 appearances. But I still believe I have a part to play,” Beckham said. (ANI)
