More than 13 years since he shocked the soccer world by turning his back on Real Madrid to sign with the Los Angeles Galaxy, Beckham remains the biggest name in Major League Soccer.

MLS will celebrate its 25th anniversary this season and the league was reminded again on Wednesday of the impact Beckham has had on the league.

Commissioner Don Garber started the day by telling a news conference that; "Without David Major League Soccer probably would not be what it is today".

The evidence was not hard to find with media outlets from around the world making the trip to New York to interview Beckham, who as always charmed the crowd with his candor and boyish smile.

As part of his deal for joining the Galaxy Beckham was given the chance to buy into an MLS franchise at a reduced price.

Although the name sounds like it is a reference to Serie A’s famous Inter , it is actually a nod to Miami ’s Spanish-speaking community. The club’s full name David Beckham ’s stadium deal is closer to reality after he passed the first big test on his way to building an MLS complex on what is now a golf course.

LOCAL RESISTANCE

In 2013 it was announced Beckham would take up his option and put a team in Miami, but as disputes over stadium sites and local resistance dragged on it seemed as if the idea of a South Florida franchise was doomed.

"I must admit over the seven years there were moments where I doubted this was going to happen," Beckham said. "There were many frustrations.

"But there wasn't a moment where I was going to walk away even though there were times it seemed this was not going to happen.

"There never was one moment when I thought Miami was not the right place."

After all the clubs, all the Champions League and World Cup matches he played in, Beckham says the hardest thing he has ever done was become the owner of a MLS franchise and getting Inter-Miami on the pitch.

"Without a doubt," Beckham said. "It has been the hardest thing to get it up and running.

"It was a real challenge but one that I knew that was going to happen. Eventually my stubbornness would get me there.

"We have worked very hard especially over the last two years to make this happen and create something special and this weekend will be our reward."

For anyone thinking Beckham would be an absentee owner leaving the heavy-lifting to co-owner Jorge Mas, the 44-year-old made it clear that was not the case.

He will be a hands-on owner, providing input on everything from player selection to shower tiles.

The club has ambitions not to just be an MLS powerhouse but a global brand much like Beckham himself.

"When you talk about hands on there is no bigger hands on owners than you are looking at right now," said Beckham, sitting alongside Mas. "Our whole ownership group is hands on.

"That will continue because we care.

"This is not a vanity project it is a legacy for us, for our families.

"I want to create a legacy that my children can turn around in 20 years and say my dad built this club."

Inter Miami were linked with Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani but ended up playing a team of unknowns in their first MLS game, which they LOST... so how have David Beckham's side ended up without a star and when will they sign one? .
David Beckham did not need players, a stadium or even a name to make headlines. Even his involvement in setting up a franchise in MLS was enough to get tongues wagging.That tends to come with the territory of being the most marketable star the game has ever produced. Beckham's celebrity speaks for itself. And yet Inter Miami have found themselves without anyone to speak for them on the pitch.
