AEG president: LA Galaxy would not be this big without Beckham
The English veteran has been a major factor for the Carson-based outfit enjoying unparalleled popularity off the pitch whilst being one of the most dominant forces on-field in the last few seasons and the president of the company that owns the franchise was full of praise for what Beckham has helped them achieve.
"We don't talk about this deal [the TV contract with Time Warner] without David Beckham. We wouldn't have gotten the Herbalife deal [five years, $25 million in 2007] without him," Lieweke said in the wake of Sunday's MLS Cup triumph.
"We certainly are not touring Indonesia, Asia and Australia without him, and we're not getting the kind of guarantees we're getting without David Beckham."
