David Beckham says he might come out of retirement and play soccer again.

The former England captain, who retired last year after a final stint at Paris Saint-Germain, said in a BBC documentary he had "a tough time" after hanging up his cleats and is tempted to come out of retirement.

The 39-year-old Beckham, who is trying to launch a Major League Soccer team and build a stadium in Miami, said "there's never been a player-owner, but maybe?"

Beckham traveled 800 miles into the Amazon rainforest for 12 days to make the documentary which will be broadcast on Monday.
