Former England captain David Beckham finally reported to the Los Angeles Galaxy's training camp on Thursday, two weeks late following an extended stay to train with Tottenham.

Beckham, whose contract with Galaxy expires in November, spent the past six weeks training with English side Tottenham but says he is now shifting his focus to helping the Galaxy get off to a good start this season.

"I could have been sitting on a beach somewhere, which obviously was an option," said Beckham on Thursday. "I am happy to be back and I am happy to see some sun.

"I only missed a few weeks with the lads here but it was important for my fitness that I continue with my (training) level there and come back fitter than I was last season." He added.

Due to injuries and commitments overseas, Beckham played just seven games with the southern California team last season.
