David Beckham targeting the Olympics

David Beckham is targeting a place at London 2012. He wants to be a player for Great Britain national team rather than a manager.

"Once the manager has been picked I'd love to be part of the Olympics," Beckham said. "I'd be honoured to be something in the GB team, especially being an East End lad.

"But it would be as a player rather than a coach. I'll be 37 but I'd still be better as a player rather than a coach. I still feel like I'm 21 when I'm playing. I still love the game like I did when I was 21, I'm still as fit as I ever was and everyone knows I've looked after myself properly.

"There are 13 months to go and a lot of decisions to be made but football has been part of my life for so many years so to be part of that would be incredible."
