David Beckham says he would love to purchase a Major League Soccer franchise, hire former Manchester United teammate Gary Neville as coach and then sack him.

The LA Galaxy star has a clause in his MLS contract that allows him to buy into a club once his playing days in North America are over and he has jokingly told MirroFootball it would be fun to bring in former defender Neville as the manager - and then get rid of him!

"I might hire Gary Neville as manager," Beckham quipped. "And then fire him!"
