Manchester United legend, David Beckham is open to helping Indian football progress if an opportunity comes up in the future, believing that he wants to "inspire the next generation of footballers".

Beckham who is currently associated with the Qatar government in their effort to host the upcoming 2022 World Cup opened up on his willingness to help during the Doha Forum event which took place last week.

Speaking during the event, the legendary midfielder claimed that football 'really unites people like no other' and insisted that he now wants to "inspire the next generation of footballers". "They needn't be from your country, they can be of any country," he said as quoted by timesnownews.com.

When asked if he would be willing to help Indian football should an opportunity present itself, the 46-year-old said 'yes'. He added that he feel privileged to be a footballer as it allowed him to travel, meet new people, and learn about different cultures.

The 46-year-old who is the current owner of Major League Soccer (MLS) side, Inter Miami CF continues to remain invested in the sport and still remains as one of the most popular footballers in the world despite retiring from the sport in 2013.
