Zimbabwean Midfielder Misses Chance To Play With David Beckham

Zimbabwean midfielder Joseph Ngwenya missed by one year the chance to play on the same team as David Beckham - but says he's happy where he is.

The British soccer legend is soon to join the Los Angeles Galaxy, for which Ngwenya played from 2004 to 2006 before being traded to the Columbus Crew in Ohio.

Ngwenya was recently traded once again to the Texas-based Houston Dynamo.

Ngwenya told reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye that while he is disappointed he won’t be Beckham's teammate, he has no regrets about his departure from Los Angeles and is confident he’ll play with Beckham at some point in his career.
