Beckham clashes with fans again

David Beckham has clashed with another fan just one week after an ugly confrontation with spectators during his first home for the Los Angeles Galaxy after returning from Italy.

The latest incident saw the 34-year-old exchange words with a male in the crowd, who was wearing an England shirt, during the Galaxy’s 1-1 draw with the Kansas City Wizards on Saturday. Beckham appeared to take offence at something the man said, and later claimed the spectator had insulted his wife, Victoria.

“He shouldn’t actually be wearing that shirt because what he was saying about my wife was a disgrace,” Beckham said.

What was interesting about this encounter was that it took place in Kansas City and not at the Home Depot Center. This might indicate that anti-sentiment towards Beckham is not limited to just Galaxy fans, but carries across the MLS.

In the game Beckham got his first assist of the season on an Landon Donovan goal as the Galaxy and Wizards tied 1-1. The draw snapped the Galaxy’s (6-3-10) four-match winning streak while Kansas City (5-6-6) is winless over its last three matches and 1-2-4 over the past seven.
