David Beckham has hinted he may resume his career by playing for the Major League Soccer team he is trying to launch in Miami.

The former England captain, now 39, retired from playing in 2012. He begun his career at Manchester United, where he was part of the infamous 'treble' side of 1998/99 who won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

He went on to play for Spanish giants Real Madrid before signing a 5 year mega deal with LA Galaxy. He also had loan spells with A.C Milan and Paris Saint Germain, playing for the latter when he played his final professional football match, as he helped them to the Ligue 1 title.

Beckham speaks about resuming his playing career in the upcmoming BBC documentary, David Beckham: Into the Unknown, which will be shown on Monday, 9 June at 20:30

Beckham said: "There's never been a player-owner but maybe?"

The show follows the former midfielder as he travels 800 miles into the Amazon rainforest.

Beckham admitted he had "a tough time" after retiring but has gone through "a stage of enjoying the rest" and is tempted to come out of retirement.

He said: "Now I go to watch a basketball game and, when you are watching athletes play at the top of their game, for me it gives me that itch again and I want to be back in the game then and I start thinking to myself 'Could I play again? Could I go back? Could I come out of retirement and start playing again?'"

Beckham was joined by three friends on the 12-day trip which saw the quartet travel by motorbike, canoe and plane to the remote Yanomami tribe and spend the night in their isolated village, and was pleasantly surprised by the fact that 'no one knew who I was'.
