Former England footballer Lineker says Beckham doesn't deserve to be in Team GB

London, Fri, 20 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 20(ANI): Former England footballer Gary Lineker has said David Beckham doesn't deserve to be in the Great Britain squad for the London Olympics.

"If you are going to pick the best three over-age players, then you would say no [to Beckham]," The BBC quoted Lineker, as saying.

Beckham is among 80 players in contention for a place in the squad and has spoken about his wish to be captain in London.

Lineker suggested that while Beckham, who currently plays for LA Galaxy in the United States, was not worth a place on purely playing grounds, there might be another reason that could see him make the cut.

"If it is a 'thank you' for all the work that Beckham has done for the Olympics and getting it to London, then it is a different matter. I would pick my best three players if I was in charge. That is who I would want, but who knows? It might be a done deal," he said.

The draw for the 2012 Olympic football competition will take place on Tuesday 24 April at Wembley. (ANI)
