London, May 14 (ANI): Coach Fabio Capello wants David Beckham to join him on the coaching staff at this year's World Cup.

Becks is currently out of the squad with a ruptured Achilles tendon, but Capello believes he could be of great help behind the scenes, The Sun reports.

Beckham, 35, however, will not be going to the squad's pre-World Cup training camp in Austria, as he continues the rehabilitation from his injury. Instead, he will fly out with the 23-player party to South Africa on June 2.

The England 2018 bid team want to use the former skipper to help promote their campaign to host the World Cup in eight years' time.

Capello, though, will release Becks, for only one or two events and the coaching job will be his main focus. (ANI)
