Miami nice for David Beckham as MLS options are explored


David Beckham was in Miami over the weekend viewing sports facilities as he continues to look into the possibility of investing in a new Major League Soccer team.

The 38-year-old former England captain (above) met with representatives of the Miami-Dade Sports Commission as part of his trip as he weighs up his options following his retirement from playing last month.

"I think Miami fans are very passionate about their sports and very passionate about winning and of course, it would have to be success but it's definitely exciting," he said.

The state of Florida does not currently have a team in MLS.
