CARSON (USA): David Beckham will announce the next stop in his career near the end of the year. Until then, he’s focusing on winning one more trophy with the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Beckham said he has several ”exciting opportunities on the table” to continue playing after he leaves the Galaxy next month, capping a six-season US career with Los Angeles’ second straight appearance in the MLS Cup on December 1.

”I still feel that I have something left in me as a player,” Beckham said at the Galaxy’s training complex. ”I still feel like I have one more challenge in me as a player. Even at 37 years old, I still can play at a high level. Where that will be yet, I haven’t decided.

”Right now my focus is on the final,” he added. ”Once that’s out of the way, we have an (exhibition) tour to deal with, and then it’s Christmas, which we always spend in London, so I’ll be there and I’ll make the decision then.”

The English midfielder wasn’t specific about where he might end up next, deflecting questions about every destination from Australia and China to France and Britain.

While discussing his future in the most oblique terms, Beckham only confirmed he won’t move to New York or any other MLS team.

After two strong MLS seasons largely free from major injuries, Beckham says he’s leaving Los Angeles only because he reached every goal he set for himself in his landmark move stateside in 2007.

“I feel that I’ve been successful off the field, but on the field has always been the most important thing for me,” Beckham said.

”To be able to win a championship last year, that was the final goal for me with this team.” (AP)
