David Beckham is serious about two things: soccer, and his family. He’s managed to keep things in balance this past week. Early in the week, while his wife Victoria was away playing on swings during a photo shoot, David took his boys shopping in Hollywood. A few days later he played a game for the LA Galaxy in Kansas City and snapped at a fan who made ‘disgraceful’ comments about his wife, Victoria. It seems that David tried to brush it off after almost getting caught up in the heat of the moment, but afterwards, he still seemed pretty angry. From Daily Mail,
“Here we go again! These days it seems David Beckham is intent on getting more attention for run-ins with angry fans at his matches than for his footwork on the pitch.
Yesterday the football superstar had yet another unfriendly face-to-face with an angry spectator at a Kansas City game – this time to defend wife Victoria Beckham’s honour.
This comes a mere few days after that now infamous encounter with a riled up LA Galaxy fan – now banned for life – who refused to shake his hand.
David looked upset as he went up to the man who was wearing an England shirt during the LA Galaxy’s game at Kansas City Wizards on Saturday claiming he was bad-mouthing his wife Victoria.
David could be heard during the match – broadcast live on U.S TV – shouting to the fan: ‘Is that an England shirt?’
But rather than have an angry war of words to defend his wife’s honour, he held out his hand for a handshake in what appeared a friendly gesture and a peace offering.
David made sure there was no repeat of the bust-up, which marred last weekend’s friendly with AC Milan and saw him fined $1,000 (USD) by Major League Soccer.
Later, however, he branded the fan a ‘disgrace’ for allegedly hurling insults about Posh.
When asked about the incident in an interview immediately after the final whistle, he blasted: ‘He shouldn’t actually be wearing that shirt because what he was saying about my wife was a disgrace.’
But he was clearly disappointed with the fan, who appeared to be holding a can of drink.
David was again booed by sections of the sell-out 10,000-plus crowd at the ground, which is actually a minor league baseball stadium.
But there was still plenty of support for the England star, who signed autographs for fans after helping the rejuvenated Galaxy come from a goal behind to draw 1-1.”
I don’t know much about the world of soccer so I’m not sure if I’m right here. But I don’t think it’s necessary to call a fan out during the middle of a game and then later say that they aren’t even fit to be a fan. Seriously! That might be a slight overreaction. I also think that David Beckham is just a touch too arrogant for his own good to begin with so, this type of behavior only backs up my theory. I am glad to see that he really does love his wife, and that he’s really ready to fight for her, should the need arise. I just think he needs to start choosing his time and place better, and maybe not be ready for a fight all the time.
