Could David Beckham, center, return to the field as a player-owner in Miami?

LONDON (AP) - 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.
