MANILA, Philippines – David Beckham has closed the chapter on the most high profile soccer import in the United States since Pele in the 1970s.
The former England captain bowed out of Major League Soccer on a winning note as LA Galaxy retained their title with a 3-1 victory over Houston Dynamo in the MLS Cup final.
It was a fitting way for Beckham to end his six seasons as he added another title to his collection.
The midfielder has won league titles in his final season with all three of the clubs he has played with on a permanent basis: Manchester United, Real Madrid, and now Galaxy. Mornings @ ANC, December 3, 2012
