Turns out David Beckham may not have played his last game in Major League Soccer after leaving the Galaxy two years ago.
The former English national team captain and two-time MLS champion is talking about a comeback.
Beckham, 39, who has put together an ownership group to place an MLS expansion team in Miami, says he may just decide to play for his new team.
"There's never been a player-owner. But maybe," Beckham says during a BBC documentary that will air June 9.
Beckham played his last competitive game for French side Paris Saint-Germain last year but says he's had a tough time in retirement.
"Now I go to watch a basketball game, and when you are watching athletes play at the top of their game, it gives me that itch again and I want to be back in the game and I starting thinking to myself, 'Could I play again? Could I go back? Could I come out of retirement and start playing again?' "
One problem: Beckham's Miami team is having trouble finding a site for its new stadium and may not begin play until 2017, when he'll be two months shy of his 42nd birthday.
