The former England captain David Beckham has ruled out any move into management, saying he hopes to conitnue playing international football for some time yet.

The 35-year-old Beckham missed the World Cup after suffering an Achilles injury in March while on loan from LA Galaxy to Serie A side AC Milan.

He hopes to return to the field in a couple of months and says he's already started running again, ahead of schedule.

Beckham was involved with the England squad in South Africa as part-mentor to the players, triggering speculation he could take on a managerial role in future.

But Beckham says while he enjoys coaching children he's not interested in being a manager.
