MILAN, Italy (AP) England midfielder David Beckham insisted on Sunday that he will play on after the 2010 World Cup.
"I've always said I'd love to carry on playing after the World Cup and that isn't going to change," Beckham said. "I don't know where the reports have come from, they definitely haven't come from myself."
The Sun newspaper reported Saturday that the AC Milan player was planning to retire and return to England once the competition in South Africa ends.
Beckham is currently on loan at AC Milan from the Los Angeles Galaxy. In his first spell in Milan, Beckham scored twice in 18 appearances.
