David Beckham nearly got into a fight with a fan at a recent LA Galaxy game. Read more and see photos and video here.
LA Galaxy was playing a game against Milan this weekend when David Beckham and a fan almost got into it. He was severely taunted and booed just about every time he got the ball. Fans are apparently upset that he missed several games in the beginning of the season, during which time he actually played with the Milan team.
While David Beckham was playing with Milan, he reportedly made statements about the level of play being higher while over there. This didn’t really sit well with fans of LA Galaxy, who let him know how they felt during this weekend’s match. So, during his attempted come back game many of them held banners that read “go home fraud” and were relentlessly booing him.
Then, just before halftime was called, David Beckham walked over toward the most raucous section of the crowd. Beckham appeared to be challenging the fans to come down and confront him.
He even seemed to be trying to jump over the barrier wall to get closer. The fan, who clearly had one too many, jumped down out of his seat and made his way toward Beckham. At that point security intervened and removed him. Beckham was then escorted to the locker room for halftime.
To be fair, some people that were there say he wasn’t looking for a fight, but that he was trying to make amends. One fan claimed that he actually approached the rowdy fan to try to shake hands with him.
Either way, it sure is bringing in a lot of publicity for the LA Galaxy (cha-ching!)
