The world was football was taking in the latest news to the high flying career of David Beckham last night when it was announced he will join Equatorial Guinea for the duration of the Africa Cup of Nations.
The ex Man United player recently signed a new two year extension to his original 5 year deal with LA Galaxy to extend his stay, but was linked with a permanent transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.
In previous years during the MLS close season he has gone on loan to AC Milan and trained with Tottenham Hotspur.
Equatorial Guinea got their Cup of Nations campaign off to a great start at the weekend, grabbing a last minute winner against Libya.
Beckham's advisor Simon Fullofhimself said " David once took a cab from Walthamstow dog track and the driver was from Guinea, and they struck up a lifelong friendship.This one month loan deal is absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Guinea payed a million dollar bonus for the win against Libya and are increasing it to two million for the next match".
