The former Manchester United and England star has been linked with brining some of the biggest names in world football to Miami. And Beckham admits he would like to bring the likes of Ronaldo and Messi across then pond. He said: “We really believe in the roster we have, the players that we have we’re really happy with but we have also talked about if we have the opportunity to bring in big name players from Europe into our city we will do that. “But we always talked about us being different from any other team, which I am sure every other owner says exactly the same thing. “So that’s what we will try to do and if we have the opportunity to bring big name players in then great we’re lucky we have an ownership group that has that vision and wants to succeed and has that competitiveness where we want the best players.” Beckham plans to have a hands-on role at the club alongside co-owner Jorge Mas. The 44-year-old, who also played for Real Madrid , AC Milan and LA Galaxy during his career, insists he’s in it for the long haul. He added: “When you talk about hands on there is no bigger hands on owners than you are looking at right now. “Our whole ownership group is hands on. That will continue because we care.

There isn’t. And unless Villaraigosa actually lives up to his promise to get tough with the overindulged City Hall unions and keep the total increase in payroll and benefit costs below the rate of inflation, there won’t be any money to solve the city’s problems next year or anytime soon. As always, Villaraigosa talks a good game, but his budget dance looks a lot like the smoke-and-mirrors deceits of his failed predecessor in the Mayor’s Office. It’s a basic one-two step – revenue goes up, service goes down. The revenue increases get more than absorbed by the costs of payroll and benefits for city staffers. There nothing left for service. Worse, there’s apparently even less, thus a massive hike in trash fees is sought to hire some badly needed cops. Voters are tired of this never-ending tango. It’s time the taxpaying public was treated better than the animals at the zoo. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s $6.7 billion spending plan for next fiscal year comes with a promise of little new other than a few more cops on the streets in exchange for a trash-fee hike. The three elephants at the zoo did better, getting $39 million for a new home. What’s shocking about the city budget is that there’s 11 percent more revenue – $600 million more – than the current budget year, thanks to soaring tax revenue. So what new and great programs or services will the public get for its money? Peanuts, really, which the elephants might like, but the human denizens have a right to expect more. last_img read more
