Beckham: Australia rumours ´definitely not true´

16 November 2012 22:54

Los Angeles Galaxy star David Beckham has dismissed suggestions he is set to join an A-League side.

Football Federation Australia said on Friday that Beckham's management approached them about moving to the A-League, most likely on a 10-game guest stint.

However, a spokesman for the former England captain denied those reports on television and Beckham rubbished the rumours after training on Friday.

"No. Definitely not true," he told reporters at the Home Depot Center.

"Bruce (Arena) told me that this morning – the first I'd heard about it. Like I said that's the first I'd heard of that, this morning."

Arena, who was present at the press conference, jokingly added: "We've booked his tickets already."

Speculation in Australia grew on Friday with several reports Beckham was set to make the move to Australia, where Italian star Alessandro Del Piero and English striker Emile Heskey ply their trades.

LA Galaxy take on the Seattle Sounders in the second leg of the Western Conference final on Sunday.

The Galaxy were 3-0 winners in their first leg against the Sounders but Beckham said they were staying focused ahead of the trip to CenturyLink Field.

"We're not even thinking about winning another title at the moment. We're concentrating on getting through to the MLS Cup final and then we'll see but this game is far from over yet," he said.

"We might have a good, healthy lead but it's in our hands to throw away.

"We're well aware of what they can do, especially in their home ground with their fans and the atmosphere like it is so it's up to us.

"It's going to be a battle on the night and that's exactly what it's going to be on that kind of turf.

"But the fans and the way they play and the energy they'll come into the game with, they know that they're going to have to come forward onto us and get the goal so right now we're not thinking about anything else other than this game."
