Stuck on the sidelines for the World Cup, former England captain David Beckham has no plans to stay there. He has ruled out any move into management and says he hopes to be available for his country as a player for some time yet.

Davis Beckham said, "I'd love to play for my country again. I've always said that I won't retire from international football for my country. That doesn't mean I'll never get picked again. You never know in football. I always want to be available to play for my country and if the manager feels that I have a part to play the I hope I can fulfill that."

The 35-year-old Beckham did not play in the World Cup finals after suffering an achilles injury while on loan from LA Galaxy to Serie A side AC Milan.

He says he has already started running again, ahead of schedule.

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

England's most capped outfield player with 115 appearances, Beckham last played for his country in October when he made a 30-minute cameo in a 3-0 defeat of Belarus.
