"I might talk in past tense every now and then, but it doesn't mean I'm not coming back. At the end of the day, I need to decide what's best for me, what's best for the team and my family, and then we'll see."
But Beckham who played full game even as he complained of a hamstring problem said, "'Whether I stay or not, I've had an amazing five years."
'People were talking about if we didn't win it was going to be a disappointment and an unsuccessful five years. It's quietened a few people which is always nice.' he added.
