David Beckham, 37, has officially confirmed what was already known among soccer fans of L.A. Galaxy, after the team beat Houston Dynamo 3-1 in their final MLS Cup match, scoring their second Cup victory in a row.

Beckham took the podium to make a speech at the MLS Cup Celebration, held at the Home Depot Center Tennis Stadium, where he announced his departure from Galaxy despite chants of "one more year" coming from the 3,500 fans who amassed to celebrate the victory, reports the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

"I apologize and I'm sorry to disappoint," Beckham told the crowd, "but this is my last year." Beckham, husband of former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham and father to kids Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and baby Harper, didn't leave without thanking everyone who played a part in his Los Angeles fame — especially his teammates. "Lastly, I'd like to thank the most important people to me over the last six years, the people that I see every day," Beckham said as he wrapped up. "Every one of these players are incredible people."

Vice President Chris Klein echoed Beckham's sentiments: "This could be argued, I think you're looking at the greatest team in American soccer history."
