Golden Balls David Beckham has suggested that he could manage a Team GB football team at the 2012 Olympics.
London has now officially become the next Olympic city, after Guo Jinlong, Mayor of Beijing handed over the Olympic flag to London Mayor Boris Johnson. British icon David Beckham was on hand to add, and maintain, his global celebrity status.
Beckham appeared on the top of a red London double decker bus that was driven on to the track with London – Beijing – London written across the side and the No 2012 on the front. Beckham then duly kicked a football into the cheering crowd.
Beckham afterwards said he wanted to see a GB football side competing at the 2012 Olympics….
We deserve a Team GB in London and I hope it gets sorted.
When asked if he would like to coach the side, he replied:
Who knows? Let’s see, anything is possible.
Alex Ferguson has already been elected as a favourite to manage the side, with Sebastian Coe and Gordon Brown both said to have asked the Scotsman. Perhaps with Beckham as coach?
