David Beckham hints at a possible return to playing soccer in a new documentary about the retired legend.

The icon is currently trying to get a Major League Soccer franchise off the ground in Miami, and in the BBC special “David Beckham: Into the Unknown,” he signals that he might not stick solely to the business side.

“There’s never been a player-owner but maybe?” he’s quoted as saying.

Beckham admits he’s had a “tough time” away from the playing field and is tempted to return.

He explains, “Now I go to watch a basketball game and, when you are watching athletes play at the top of their game, it gives me that itch again and I want to be back in the game and I start thinking to myself ‘Could I play again? Could I go back? Could I come out of retirement and start playing again?'”
