Tim Leiweke is an admirer of Frank Lampard. Not surprisingly, owners of LA Galaxy Lampard is hoping to fill the slot designated (marquee) player (DP) team, the next few years.
"I am a fan Lampard. He's a great player. When it comes to Chelsea, I always think of Lampard," Leiweke told Sky Sports.
Although admired, Leiweke conscious impossible to bring Lampard today. Because the Galaxy already has David Beckham, Robbie Keane, and Landon Donovan as the DP on the team.
"When bringing Beckham took two years to persuade him. However, we are looking for the next DP," said Leiweke. "There are a lot of good players and we had a good relationship. But most important is to have a slot left. While we no longer have a DP slot."
Asked about the possibility of appealing Galaxy Lampard, David Beckham was enthusiastic. "If you do decide to leave Chelsea, Lampard will definitely demand a lot of teams," he said.
Beckham's optimistic Galaxy enough to bring Lampard. Leiweke is considered Beckham's personal ability is very good to persuade players to join his team.
