"I admire Beckham as a football champion and I'd hate to see him being used as puppet for AEG."
Beckham has agreed to train with the north London club until 10 February, but sources close to him have admitted the prospect of the 35-year-old actually playing for them during the course of his short-term move hang in the balance.
Talks between Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy and AEG chief executive Tim Leiweke will continue on Monday regarding the length of Beckham's stay and what proportion of his wages Spurs will pay.
One sticking point is that Spurs want the former Manchester United man until mid-March, meaning Beckham would miss all of LA Galaxy's pre-season.
However, Beckham will undergo a medical at Tottenham on Monday and it is believed that once he starts training, that could help the deal progress one way or other.
