Getafe coach Bernd Schuster believes David Beckham will be 'bored to tears' when the reality of life in Major League Soccer hits home.

Schuster has been tipped as the likely replacement for Real Madrid coach Fabio Capello should the Italian be edged out by the newly-crowned Primera Liga champions, and has warned that Beckham's decision to quit the Bernabeu for the Los Angeles Galaxy could come back to haunt him.

The former Madrid star believes Beckham's sparkling end-of-season form proves he is still capable of performing at the highest level, and doubts whether the MLS will pose a challenge to the former England captain.

Schuster told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser: 'I think Beckham will be bored to tears in Los Angeles.

'He could have played for two or three more years in Madrid. It's a shame he has left.'

Beckham's four-year spell at Madrid ended with the capital club clinching the league title following a 3-1 victory against Real Mallorca on Sunday.

The 32-year-old will begin his record-breaking five-year contract at LA Galaxy on July 1.
