LA Galaxy coach Arena tribute to Beckham: He's done more for MLS than anyone would have imagined

LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena has paid tribute to David Beckham ahead of his final game for the club.

Former Manchester United and Real Madrid star Beckham will leave the Galaxy after the MLS Cup final.

"It's great in that it brings closure to David's tenure with the Galaxy and MLS," Galaxy head coach Arena said. "David's 37 years old. He can't play forever. He's done more in MLS and for MLS than any of us ever would have imagined.

"He's worth a lot more to the league than we ever could have thought.

"He's done wonders for the Galaxy and he's done incredible amounts of positive things for MLS. We are now a well-known league around the world and we can attribute a lot of that to David.

"His six years in MLS have been tremendous and I think it's more than any of us could have imagined."
