Report: Beckham says no to A-League

Former England star David Beckham is reported to have ruled out

a move to Australia’s A-League.

Tony Sage, owner of the Perth Glory which was one of three

A-League clubs hoping to sign Beckham, said the former Manchester

United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy midfielder had told him he would

not be moving to Australia.

Sage told he bumped into Beckham at the

London premier on Tuesday of the Spice Girls musical Viva


He said Beckham ”looked me in the eye and basically said, `that

would be nice, but it’s too far away from my businesses.’ It would

have been great to have him at Perth Glory, but it looks like that

won’t be happening.”
