California: Former England captain David Beckham became the first Major League Soccer (MLS) player to honoured with a statue, which will be unveiled outside LA Galaxy’s stadium on March 2.

In 2007, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder became the first big European name to join the MLS, where he won back-to-back championships in 2011 and 2012 during his six years and 98 appearances with the Galaxy.

The 43-year-old is currently the owner of expansion side Inter Miami CF, which is set to join the MLS in 2020.

The ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder was the first star to play in the American and now he will become the first player from any club to be honoured with a statue.
