David Beckham's Return to LA Galaxy Harsh
English soccer player, David Beckham, had a harsh welcoming to Los Angeles after returning from a five-month loan to AC Milan. The friendly match between Galaxy and Milan was Beckham's first since the end of the loan.
The crowd demonstrated against Beckham by showing homemade signs saying "Go home fraud", "23: Repent", and "Is evil something u are...or something u do". The signs clearly had an affect to Beckham, because at the halftime, he walked towards the Galaxy crowd and waved one fan to come closer. The fan jumped out from the grandstand but the security took him away.
Beckham later commented the incident:
Sometimes it goes beyond it. I tried to shake one of the guy's hands but he didn't want any of it. That's the way it is.
In the 65th minute Beckham lobbed a corner kick to Bryan Jordan, who headed the ball in the net. Instead of celebrating with his teammates, Beckham turned and shouted to the crowd "What do you want". The match ended 2-2.
Earlier this yer, Beckham had said that he would rather play in the Italian club, because "the level-of-play is much greater in Europe". He had also stated that playing in Europe would give him better chance of playing at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
