BECKHAM SEES ‘BRIGHT’ FUTURE FOR CHINA GAME

0

SHANGHAI: Football superstar David Beckham said Thursday he sees a “bright” future for the Chinese game despite past corruption scandals and the dismal performance of the national team. Visiting Shanghai as ambassador to the Chinese Super League, the recently-retired former England captain defended his decision to take up the role, which has been viewed as an ambitious attempt by the football authorities to improve the battered image of the Chinese game. The 38-year-old began his new role in Chinese football in March, before announcing his retirement last month after winning the French league title with Paris Saint-Germain.
