David Beckham has revealed he will continue playing after this summer's World Cup.
One national newspaper report on Saturday claimed the 34-year-old, currently on loan at AC Milan from LA Galaxy, was planning to retire and return home to England after the competition in South Africa is over.
He said: "I've always said I'd love to carry on playing after the World Cup and that isn't going to change.
"I don't know where the reports have come from, they definitely haven't come from myself."
Beckham played the entire 90 minutes as the Rossoneri thrashed Siena 4-0 on Sunday. It is his second loan spell in as many seasons with Leonardo's side and he refused to rule out a hat-trick of moves in 2011.
"We will have to wait and see," Beckham added.
"I will want to be playing top flight football. I have a year and a half left on my contract with Los Angeles, and obviously I am going back there after this, so it won't be a problem."
Although Beckham put in a solid performance against Siena, it was team-mate Ronaldinho who stole the show with his first hat-trick in Italian football.
The Brazilian has struggled to find his best form in Serie A but is hopeful that haul will began to repay the faith shown in him by the Milan supporters.
He said: "I feel loved and respected so I have been able to enter the ground and realise my dream of returning all this affection from the fans.
"It's a special moment for my life and my career. We know we will have to continue to work hard if we are to win the Scudetto, but I think we have a good chance of winning three trophies this season."
