David Beckham landed in Florida on Monday night to mount a charm offensive promoting his plans to spend more than £125million on creating a new soccer team and stadium in Miami.
The former England star pledged that he did not want to be ‘an enemy’ of those people and organisations who may be opposed to his scheme to build a state-of-the-art venue on sought-after land at the Port of Miami.
British royalty might have struggled to pull a larger phalanx of media to his rooftop address in the downtown area, which heaved with cameras as he talked of transforming the South West Corner of the waterfront into a space his advisers hope could turn out similar to Sydney Opera House
