The 18-year-old would be following in the footsteps of Robbie Williams, who owns a team called LA Vale - in tribute to his home town club Port Vale.

Justin told the Daily Star: "I've been playing a lot of soccer over the last two or three years. I've been really enjoying it.

"I know there's an LA celebrity team that Robbie Williams was in, but I am looking to start a team for the younger guys. The One Direction guys said that they'll play and also Lil Bow Wow."

And Justin's very sure who he'd hire to get his players up to superstar standard.

He continued: "There's only one guy we want to coach the team and that is David Beckham.

"I am going to personally ask David myself and I'm really hoping he will say yes. And we will play only 10 minutes from his house."

Justin says the team will probably only play a few games a season, but he'd like to rope in girlfriend Selena Gomez and David's wife Victoria to also play a part.

He said: "I was going to ask my girl Selena and Victoria if they wanted to be cheerleaders for us.

"But hey, that might be pushing it."
