Round two! Posh abuse sees Beckham raging at fans for the second time
27 July 2009 12:53
David Beckham has clashed with another fan just one week after an ugly confrontation with spectators during his first home game 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 replica 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.
The former England captain was fined £609 on Friday by Major League Soccer over his earlier confrontation with fans during the friendly clash with AC Milan.
Beckham had received a less than friendly welcome at his first home game after returning from a five-month loan spell at AC Milan - the team the Galaxy were playing.
MLS commissioner Don Garber dished out a US dollars 1,000 (£609) penalty to the former England captain, who is reported to earn $1m a week with the MLS side.
The 34-year-old has endured a rocky relationship with American supporters since returning to the Galaxy after a five-month loan stint with AC Milan.
Galaxy fans in particular were angered by Beckham's reluctance to return from Europe, where he is expected to return at the end of the MLS season.
It was against his former San Siro team-mates on Monday that Beckham apparently lost his cool with the constant barracking from the stands.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder marched over to a section of supporters and had to be restrained by security as he sought to make his point.
An angry fan also jumped down from the stands and attempted to reach Beckham before having his way blocked.
It was the veteran's first home match since returning to the Galaxy, and he was greeted with several hostile banners reading messages such as 'Go Home Fraud' and 'Hey Becks, Here Before You, Here after You, Here Despite You'.
