'Mrs. Brown's Boys' star Brendan O'Carroll is hoping to buy a stake in David Beckham's soccer franchise.

The British TV star is a big fan of the sport and lives in Florida - where the legend's new club will be based - and he is keen to support his soon-to-be local team.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I'm hoping to buy into it. I'd love the US to do well at soccer as it would be so good for the game.

"It used to be a girls' game in America, but interest in soccer has really grown."

However, Brendan - who is worth £8 million - has ruled out a comedy collaboration with David, insisting he just isn't "funny" enough.

He said: "Beckham is not really funny."

Earlier this year, the comedy actor blasted his own critics, describing them a "donkey" rather than a "racehorse".

He ranted: "F**k them! I do respect critics. I know they've got a job to do, but they'll always be a donkey telling the racehorse how he should have won the race.

"If they want to be a racehorse, run the race! Anyone can criticise me all they like, but as long as they write [about it], f**k off."
