Beckham reveals LA Galaxy fears
David Beckham will leave Real Madrid for LA Galaxy
David Beckham will sign for LA Galaxy on Friday
David Beckham fears he could disappoint LA Galaxy fans when he finally joins his new club on Friday.

The former England captain, 32, signed a five-year deal worth a reported 125m when he joined Major League Soccer side from Real Madrid.

He said: "People probably do think they're going to see me turn out, and we'll win our first game 10-0. That's one thing I'm worried about.

"I'm not a player who will run past 10 players and score three or four goals."

He added: "My game is about working hard and being a team player."

Beckham also admitted he feels he could have stayed longer at Real Madrid, after winning La Liga and forcing his way back into Steve McClaren's England squad.

He said: "I felt capable of staying for longer at Real. I could have still played for three more seasons at the highest level.

"But after the club told me in January that they did not want to renew my contract, I took this decision.

"The day we won the title with a 3-1 win over Real Mallorca my heart ached - but the decision was already taken.

"I am going to continue to support Real Madrid and follow them next season."
