David Beckham has been honoured with a statue by former club LA Galaxy.


LA Galaxy unveiled a statue of former England captain David Beckham.

Beckham is the first MLS player to be honoured in such a way, with the statue erected outside Dignity Health Sports Park and unveiled before Galaxy’s Major League Soccer season opener against the Chicago Fire.

Ex-Manchester United midfielder Beckham, 43, won the MLS Cup twice in five seasons with Galaxy from 2007.

Beckham said: “I am truly proud you have created something to – a – keep me young and – b – give my family and friends and especially my kids, who can come here one day very soon and see something of their father and see what we created and what I achieved.”

During the unveiling ceremony at Dignity Health Sports Park, former Galaxy team-mate Robbie Keane, NBA legend Kobe Bryant and US rapper Snoop Dogg paid tribute to Beckham.
