David Beckham hopes to return Sept. 11 for Galaxy
David Beckham, who has missed the entire season for the Galaxy after tearing his Achilles tendon in March while on loan to AC Milan, hopes to play a week from Saturday when the Galaxy play the Columbus Crew in Carson.
Beckham, 35, said on the Galaxy's website: "I'll keep my fingers crossed and hopefully will play in part of the game here against Columbus. I'll be on the bench, and hopefully I'll get on the field for 15-20 minutes. That's what I'm looking at."
The Galaxy have won only three of their last 10 MLS games, and their lead has dwindled to three points over Real Salt Lake for the top record in the Western Conference.
