New York:

David Beckham has been voted Major League Soccer's comeback player of the year after missing most of the 2010 season with a torn Achilles tendon.

The former England captain won the award Monday after receiving 59.76 percent of votes from the media, players and club officials, having set up 15 goals for the Los Angeles Galaxy, which finished the season with the best regular-season record.

DC United forward Charlie Davies, joining MLS after serious injuries in an October 2009 car crash, was second with 57.81 percent followed by Chicago Fire forward Dominic Oduro with 41.52 percent.

The Galaxy's Bruce Arena became the first three-time winner of coach of the year. He also won in 1997 with D.C. United and 2009 with the Galaxy.
