Say what you will about David Beckham, but the former Manchester United star is persistent.
Beckham reiterated that he's confident an MLS team will come to Miami, along with a soccer specific state-of-the-art stadium.
“Miami will happen,” he said in an interview with Bloomberg Television’s Mark Crumpton. “I said I want to bring a team here and I will take a team to Miami. There are speed bumps along the way and we've come up against those.”
Those bumps include two rejected proposals to build in a stadium in Miami.
“I've been very cheeky in a way because I've gone into Miami and I said ‘OK, I wanna build Old Trafford or Wembley stadium next to Buckingham Palace,’” Beckham continued.
“My dream was to have our stadium on a waterfront. It’s not worked out like that and we have alternative sites. It will happen.”
The positive for Miami soccer fans starving for professional soccer? Beckham won't stop.
