London: English soccer star David Beckham has been named Major League Soccer Comeback Player of the Year.
The award was voted on by club representatives, media, and players, according to reports.
The 36-year-old player, whose five-year contract with the Los Angeles Galaxy expires this month, suffered a torn Achilles tendon what limited him to just 10 games with the Galaxy and forced him to skip the FIFA World Cup in 2010.
But he had a persuasive fifth season in the North American league after coming back from injury.
Beckham registered 15 assists (second in the league) in 26 games and scored twice this year. He also surpassed his personal MLS-bests in games played (previously 25) and assists (10).
Beckham was also named recently to the MLS Best XI this season, joining four other midfielders on the all-star team.
