Star midfielder David Beckham who has signed a two-year contract to remain with the Los Angeles Galaxy, has said one of the main reasons he wanted to continue in LA was because of his family.

"For the last five years, we have had an amazing time living here, and working here, and our children are happy, so that was the biggest part of our decision," the 36-year-old said in a news conference.

The former England captain added that he was looking forward to the 2012 Olympic Games, saying he would love to be part of the GB team.
