'Mrs. Brown's Boys' actor Brendan O'Carroll has revealed he intends to buy a stake in David Beckham's Miami soccer franchise, as he now lives in Florida and they would be his local team
'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."
