Beckham to build football training centre in Brazil

David Beckham is to build a training centre at a luxury resort near the north-eastern Brazilian city of Natal, in the state of Rio Grande del Norte, news website G1 reported Tuesday. Beckham said in a press conference in Brazil that he does not intend to teach Brazilians to play football. He only wants to develop the sport in the South American country, he said.

"I am happy Brazilian children will benefit from access to the top class facilities and coaching at this resort," Beckham said.

The project is to be financed by the Norwegian group Brasil Development. A luxury resort is to be built at the beach Cabo de Sao Roque, in the town of Barra de Maxaraguape, some 50 kilometres from Natal.
