The club has announced that David Beckham will remain with Spurs until the 22nd of February.
The statement reads: “David Beckham has extended his training spell at the club until February 22. The England midfielder will now return to Los Angeles to report for pre-season training with LA Galaxy on February 24.”
Beckham’s MLS side have been playing some pre-season friendlies and, if you read some of the US press, they seem almost resigned to losing him in November.
The Chicago Tribune quotes Galaxy coach Bruce Arena as giving a reaction that amounted to a yawn and a ‘so what’, and the paper goes on to imply that a move back to the Premier League seems inevitable, because the player needs EPL football to keep his dream alive of playing for England.
Many Spurs fans will probably mirror Bruce Arena’s reaction, but this could be a small, yet important development in Beckham’s relationship with Tottenham.
