The Los Angeles Galaxy have been in dire need of a spark to lift them from their late summer funk and soon, they may have just that.
Midfielder David Beckham has eyed a September 11th return to action after a long injury layoff. The 35-year-old has been recovering from surgery after suffering a torn Achilles tendon while playing for A.C. Milan in March that caused him to miss the World Cup.
Beckham has been participating in full training with the team since August 11th and will look to play 15-20 minutes in the Galaxy's next home match against the Columbus Crew.
Beckham's status had been labeled a "week to week" by head coach Bruce Arena after the Galaxy's loss to Kansas City on Saturday.
The Galaxy head into this weekend's match against Chicago riding a two-match losing streak and has posted a 2-4-1 record in its past seven matches.
Do you think that Beckham's return could cure the Galaxy's ills? Are you excited to see him return to action?
