    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.

    Ultimately in Miami it’s the fans who’ll decide if Beckham's game plan is a winner.
