David Beckham set for Galaxy return

Table of Contents
After a long injury layoff, David Beckham has been taken off the disabled list and is set to take to the field for the Los Angeles Galaxy this weekend.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star ruptured his left Achilles while on loan at AC Milan in March, ending Beckham's dream of playing in a fourth World Cup finals for England.

"Being on the sidelines for six months has been the toughest part of my career so far," Beckham told reporters after Galaxy practice.

"Not playing for six months is really tough. It's the first time that's happened to me in my life. Yes I've had other injuries but nothing that has kept me out for so long.

"And it's so frustrating when you are injured and you're not involved in the game and you can't do anything.

"But it's made me realise how much I do love the game. That's one of the biggest things that's come out of me being injured - I still love the game and I'm not ready to finish yet."

He added: "My mental attitude is a huge thing. I'm a positive person, I'm always enthusiastic about training and playing.

"That's helped me personally and hopefully it can help with me going back into the team to give them a lift for the games coming up.

"I've only been eligible to play for a couple of days now. So being taken off that injured list is a boost for me and hopefully being involved in the game on Saturday will be another boost.

"The important thing for me is the soccer. As long as I can get on the field and get myself fit, that's what matters.

"I'm feeling very good and I'm ready. I've been working hard with the rehab, trying to get the strength back in my legs."
