Milan bosses want Becks to stay in Italy

MILAN - David Beckham will have AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti and vice president Adriano Galliani supporting him if he wants to get out of his Los Angeles Galaxy contract to stay in Italy.

MILAN - David Beckham will have AC Milan coach Carlo Ancelotti and vice president Adriano Galliani supporting him if he wants to get out of his Los Angeles Galaxy contract to stay in Italy.

Beckham was halfway through a three-month loan with Milan that will end on March 8.

He has told the Italian media he has enjoyed his return to Europe more than he expected, and while he respected the five-year contract with Los Angeles signed in 2007, he said playing for Milan was "something special".

The Galaxy has reiterated that it wants Beckham back when the loan ends. But Ancelotti, who has been surprisingly impressed by Beckham, would like the England midfielder to remain at San Siro.

"Nobody can tell what will happen after March 9," Ancelotti told Sky TV Italia.

"He wants to stay here, he has not hidden that fact, but it is a problem between him and LA Galaxy. As a club, we cannot get into this matter." - Sapa-AP
