Injured Beckham to miss whole of MLS season

David Beckham has confirmed he will not play for Los Angeles Galaxy in the 2010 season as he battles back to fitness from a ruptured Achilles.

Beckham, who suffered the injury which ruled him out of a fourth World Cup finals while playing on loan for AC Milan last month, will not even be running for several months.

Beckham added on mlssoccer.com: "This is an injury that is going to take time to heal. I'm only six weeks in after the surgery. I started therapy 10 days ago and just doing that every day. I kind of want to push it but with this kind of injury you can't. You just have to wait for it to heal and then move on.

"At the moment it's just getting the motion back into the ankle, the tendon, because obviously it's still repairing. I can't stretch too much, I have to wear a boot every day. If I haven't got a boot on, which I didn't today for a few interviews, I have to use crutches - it's one or the other at the moment. It's a pain. It's not easy moving around, but I have to protect it.''

The surgeon who operated on Beckham in March, Sakari Orava, said at the time that six months was the likely time the player would be out.

Beckham also confirmed that he would not be able to begin running for three months.
