Last game for Beckham at Galaxy
(11-20 10:43)

Football legend David Beckham says he will play his final game with the Los Angeles Galaxy when the Major League Soccer club hosts the league championship early next month.
The 37-year-old former England captain has spent the past six seasons with the Galaxy, leading Los Angeles to an MLS Cup title last season when they defeated the Houston Dynamo 1-0, AFP reports.
Beckham and the Galaxy go for their second consecutive crown when they face the Dynamo in a repeat of last year's final on December 1 at the Home Depot Center.
Beckham said the game will be his last for the team as he hopes to move on and become a part-owner of an MLS team in the future.
"I've had an incredibly special time playing for the LA Galaxy. However, I wanted to experience one last challenge before the end of my playing career,'' Beckham said in a statement released by the team.
"I don't see this as the end of my relationship with the league as my ambition is to be part of the ownership structure in the future.''
