LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Former England captain David Beckham will become the first Major League Soccer player honoured with a statue, which will be unveiled outside LA Galaxy's stadium prior to their season opener on March 2, the team said on Friday.

 

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.

 

Beckham's MLS stint helped give the American league credibility and paved the way for other top European players to make the leap in subsequent years.

 

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

How will we be able to differentiate between the statue outside the stadium and the real-life statue?

Will they make the statue as big as Statue of Liberty with a glowing ball instead of the torch? Would fit better somewhere in England though....
