Beckham unlikely to be up to Premier League standard: Keegan

11:01 am on 7 January 2011

The former England international Kevin Keegan says David Beckham will find it difficult to make a successful return to the Premier League and regain his place in the England national side.

Beckham, who's with the LA Galaxy, is reported to be keen on a loan move ahead of the start of the Major League Soccer season, with Tottenham Hotspur leading the chase.

But Keegan, who managed Beckham when in charge of the England side more than a decade ago, questions whether the 35-year-old former Manchester United midfielder will be up to scratch.
