David Beckham is expected to announce a return to football later, but in a slightly different capacity.

The former England international has been planning to launch a new MLS franchise in Miami.

But even with his star pulling power, there's no guarantee it will be a success in the Florida city. The team in the US may not be that famous globally but professional football continues to expand in ther egion.
