Beckham vows to continue playing at highest level by joining Nepalese Premier League


After announcing his decision to quit LA Galaxy at the end of the current season, David Beckham has vowed to continue playing at the highest level by agreeing a deal to play in the Nepalese Premier League.

The former England captain admitted he was excited at the prospect of extending his career with Kathmandu FC, a city which resides approximately 4,430 ft above sea level, and refused to rule out a return to international football.

Releasing a statement through his PR team, Beckham stated, ‘I can’t thank the Galaxy enough for the opportunity they gave me to vast sums with them over 6 years-worth of $multi-million contracts.”

“I wish them every success in their continued attempts to line the pockets of players well past their prime.’

Beckham continued, “My attentions now, however, turn to the challenges of playing at the highest possible level, which thousands of feet above sea level with Kathmandu FC in the Nepalese Premier League.”

“I hope that this opportunity will place me firmly in Roy Hodgson’s thoughts and that I can again one day pull on an England shirt, even if that is only when accompanying him on a weekend shopping trip to Kathmandu’s recently opened ‘Sports Direct’ store.”

Advisors close to the star claim his wife, Victoria, is displeased with his choice.

“Maintaining a stoic pout whilst gasping for breath way above sea level is a challenge far greater than that which faces David.”

“She will have to at least double her visits to the botox clinic.”
