Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez says David Beckham is the right man to bring MLS back to Miami.

The former Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy star has been busy touring South Florida stadiums as he goes about the process of getting a MLS franchise from this region off the ground.

Gimenez is backing the move and feels that Beckham is the perfect ambassador to get things in working order.

"We're ready and we're excited about the possibility of having top-flight professional soccer back in Miami," Gimenez said.

"With people from all over the world living in our community, this is an ideal market for MLS and David Beckham is the right person to make it happen."
