London: David Beckham thinks he would be more useful as a player than a coach at the 2012 London Games when Britain fields its first Olympic football team since 1960.
The former England captain will be 37 when the Olympics come to London, but he maintains that fitness will not be an issue.
"There are 13 months to go and there are a lot of decisions to be made but I wold love to be part of it," Beckham told the BBC on Monday. "I'm sure I'd be better as a player than a coach so I'll have to wait and see. I still feel as if I'm 21 when I'm playing. I still love the game like I did when I was 21, I still feel as fit.
