David Beckham would relish some sort of role with England
The 39-year-old earned his 115th and final cap for the Three Lions in 2009 and his only duties with the national team off the pitch were when he served as a 'player liason' as part of Fabio Capello's backroom staff at the 2010 World Cup despite having not retired from international football.
