Beckham likely to be China league ambassador

Feb 21 2013, 5:49am CST | by

Beijing, Feb 21 (IANS) Star footballer David Beckham is likely to become the "international ambassador" for the coming 2013 Chinese Super League (CSL).

Beijing, Feb 21 — Star footballer David Beckham is likely to become the "international ambassador" for the coming 2013 Chinese Super League (CSL).

Zhu Qilin, boss of the CSL company, told Xinhua that it is almost certain that the 37-year-old star will be the CSL international ambassador, but some procedures still need to be completed.

Zhu denied that Beckham will attend the opening ceremony of the new CSL season.

"We planned to invite him, but as he will be busy preparing for the European Champions League at the time, so I don't think he can come."

The former England captain is now under a five-month contract with French Ligue 1 club Paris St. Germain, which is scheduled to play Valencia in the second leg of the Champions League last-16 March 7. The CSL opens March 8.

Aug 13 2014 11:22am CDT | Source: SBNation

The return of Glenn Hoddle to coaching has already led some to anoint him as England-manager-in-waiting. Have QPR finally hit on the solution to one of the country's most curious coaches? It's not the flashiest move that this transfer window has seen, and it's not the most exciting. But Glenn Hoddle's appointment as the first-team coach of Queens Park Rangers has the potential to be both intriguing, from a neutral perspective, and extremely canny from QPR ...

What Is the Minimum Requirement for James Rodriguez at Real Madrid This Season?

Aug 8 2014 5:50am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Knowing how to judge James Rodriguez's first season in Spain will be difficult. On the one hand, there's his pretty big price tag. Real Madrid paid Monaco £63 million for the Colombian, as reported by The Guardian, and a fee that high should dictate that the player is more than special. According to Transfermarkt, only Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez have cost more. However, while it's completely fair t ...

Mario Balotelli scores brilliant free-kick for AC Milan v Chivas [video]

Aug 7 2014 6:25am CDT | Source: 101 great goals

What a strike from Super Mario! David Beckham would be proud of this one… AC Milan continued their preparations for the 2014/2015 Serie A season with a 3-0 win over Chivas Guadalajara. Mbaye Niang and Mario Balotelli were on the scoresheet in the first half. Giampaolo Pazzini rounded things off in the second period. Balotelli’s free-kick was the standout moment. Fairly surprising that the Italian striker even got to take the shot considering Keisuke Honda was also ...

Why Karim Benzema Is Better Fit for Real Madrid Than Radamel Falcao

Aug 6 2014 5:27am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It's difficult to gauge the reliability of the incessant reports linking Monaco's Radamel Falcao with a move to Real Madrid. Indeed, the speculation surrounding the Colombian and the European champions is perhaps a reflection of president Florentino Perez's lavish history in the transfer market rather than an indication of advanced negotiations.  On Monday, AS reported that the striker's agent, Jorge Mendes, met with Perez and Real director general Jose Angel Sanchez, a ...
