Arena insists Beckham has LA Galaxy future

The 34-year-old raptured his Achilles while playing for AC Milan on Sunday and will miss the World Cup.

“Injuries are an unfortunate part of our game and they are even more disappointing when they happen to a player who was so close to realising his dream of representing his nation at this summer’s World Cup,” Arena said in a statement issued by the LA Galaxy.

“We will give David our complete support to make sure that he is able to get himself back to full health before he returns to the field.

“David remains an important player for the Galaxy and we look forward to welcoming him back to the club and assisting him in his recovery.”
