ROY BACKS GERRARD

The England manager Roy Hodgson has said that he believes that the Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard can continue playing for England for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The influential midfielder is coming to the twilight of his career, and he will be 34 years of age before the start of the World Cup. This is usually the period when most of the players consider retiring from international football in order to focus on their club careers. Hodgson, though, believes that Gerrard will have the capability to carry on playing despite turning 34 years of age.

BECKHAM IN NO RUSH

The former England captain David Beckham has said that he will not be rushing his next destination, despite getting a lot of offers. The 37-year-old is one of the most wanted players across the world due to the fact that he is available on a free transfer after leaving LA Galaxy at the end of the season.

He has been linked with clubs from England, France, China, and Spain. The QPR manager Harry Redknapp recently revealed that he would certainly consider the prospect of bringing Beckham to the Loftus Road. However, his most likely destination is set to be the French club Monaco.

BECKS STILL TOP CLASS

The new QPR manager Harry Redknapp has said that he believes that the former England international David Beckham is still good enough to play in the Premier league.

He has said that he will not rule out a possible move for the LA Galaxy star, who has recently revealed that he will be bringing an end to his American adventure from this season. The 37-year-old is out of contract after just two months. He has played for the last six seasons in the US where he has been able to raise the profile of the football to great levels.

ARENA TAKES BLAME

The LA Galaxy manager Bruce Arena has said that much of the early season poor form of the team was down to him. He has said that he made significant changes to the team in the second half of the campaign, which has led them to dominate the latter stages.

The 4-2 win over Toronto in recent match put them in a great position to defend the MLS title that they won last season. LA Galaxy are now unbeaten in the last six matches, while they have won five matches in this run. Despite this, they are currently third in the table some 11 points behind the leaders San Jose earthquakes.

LONDON MADE BECKS PROUD

The LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham has said that his sons were extremely inspired by the athletes at the London Olympics 2012, which was a huge success. Great Britain was given the opportunity to host the Olympics tournament this time around.
