When former England captain David Beckham joined LA Galaxy in 2007, the intention was to create a seismic wave of attention to the MLS.
Indeed he was the first big European name to join the league, boosting its popularity and paving the way for other global stars to make the leap.
The Club in return, erects a statue of a man who won back-to-back championships in 2011 and 2012 during his six years and 98 appearances with the Galaxy.
My kids can come here one day very soon and see something of their father and see what we’ve created and what I achieved. For that, I’m truly grateful. For that, I’m thankful.
“And the fact that my kids can come, their kids can come one day and say, ‘that’s dad’, ‘that’s grandad’. Thank you very much for that,” an emotional David speaking from the podium.
It is the first time in history that a club is honoring a former MLS player.
“When I first moved to LA, people turned round to me and said, LA is a place where dreams come true.

Facebook suspends thousands of apps in response to Cambridge Analytica row
Facebook Inc said, it has suspended tens of thousands of apps on the social networking platform, as part of the company’s ongoing app developer investigation it began in March 2018 in response to the Cambridge Analytica row.
The suspended apps are associated with about 400 developers, Facebook said, adding that it is not necessarily an indication that these apps were posing a threat to users.
Earlier this year, the company agreed to pay a record-breaking $5 billion fine to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to resolve a government probe into its privacy practices.
The FTC privacy probe was triggered last year by allegations that Facebook violated a 2012 consent decree and inappropriately shared information of 87 million users with British political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica.
Facebook has since agreed to boost safeguards on user data and has put curbs on the amount of information that third-party developers can request from platform users.
“… We’re making progress. We won’t catch everything, and some of what we do catch will be with help from others outside Facebook,” the company said in a blogpost.
