LOS ANGELES (AP) — David Beckham will play his last game for the Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS Cup next month.
Beckham and the Galaxy announced the English midfielder’s decision Monday, a day after the defending MLS champions advanced to their second straight league final. Los Angeles faces Houston for the MLS title on Dec. 1.
The 37-year-old Beckham isn’t retiring, but the superstar he gave no hint of his next move.
“I’ve had an incredibly special time playing for the L.A. Galaxy,” Beckham said. “However, I wanted to experience one last challenge before the end of my playing career. I don’t see this as the end of my relationship with the league, as my ambition is to be part of the ownership structure in the future.”
Beckham has played in Los Angeles for six seasons since his groundbreaking move from Real Madrid, reaching three league finals and winning the MLS title last year during his best stateside campaign.
