Houston: David Beckham might be back in training by the end of August, his LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said on Wednesday.
The England international tear his Achilles tendon in March and missed the World Cup in South Africa after undergoing surgery. "I can believe there's a chance he can begin training by the end of August," Arena told reporters following the MLS All-Star game against Beckham's first club Manchester United on Wednesday.
The MLS regular season finishes at the end of October but the Galaxy, who guide the Western Conference, are expected to be involved in the November play-offs that make a decision the title. Was too early on to say whether the 35-year-old could be involved in the playoffs, Arena added. "There's a possibility he could play towards the end of the MLS regular spell, but at this point in time it would be difficult to say yes or no."
