England boss Roy Hodgson says that he would love to have someone of David Beckham's stature involved with the Three Lions in some capacity.

Roy Hodgson has claimed that he would relish the chance to work with David Beckham within the England setup.

Former captain Beckham has offered his services to the Three Lions coach and claimed that he would be "very proud" to be involved in his backroom staff.

"Someone of David's stature, with his qualities and personality, I'm 100 per cent certain if he can find the time to lend his presence to the FA they would be happy to find a role for him," Hodgson told Sky Sports News.

"If he could make himself available for England in some way or another I have no doubt in my mind that [FA chairman] Greg Dyke and [FA general secretary] Alex Horne would welcome his presence within an England capacity."

Beckham made 115 England appearances in an international career that spanned 13 years.
