"I wanted to create a team where we can start from scratch," Beckham said, explaining his decision to bring the expanding league's 22nd soccer club to Florida

"I wanted to create a team that would be very personal to me
"We're planning to bring a team that will be a global team," he said, arguing that in the past 10 years American soccer has made huge progress as both a sport and a business
