I am a very superstitious person, and back when it was announced that David would be introduced to the LA Galaxy on Friday 13th July, I said it was not a good sign.
Unfortunately, this now appears to be true.
- His ankle problem prevented him from making his competitive debut until 9th August against DC United, were he came on as a substitute in the second half as his team again lost 1-0.
- Not being able to join in full training sessions.
- Fans booing him at stadiums.
- Beckham's involvement in bust-up during LA Galaxy's 3-0 defeat by Chivas and now his sprained ankle which could see him out for 6 weeks, in which he will miss 2 of England's biggest games.
As Janie said. "I hate to say I told you so". This move has been a disaster from the beginning and this all could have been avoided if they had just let him get 100% and think of the player rather than the money he generates. I believe that in shirts sales alone David has already nearly paid back the Galaxy so why don't they let him rest?
David Beckham told reporters after yesterday's game, "I'm going to have a scan tomorrow and we'll see the full extent of what it is and how long I'll be out, but at this stage, it's hard to tell, but it doesn't feel good.... With a ligament strain, it's 4-to-6 weeks. We'll have to wait and see... If it is four to six, I won't be flying to England."
He also said, referring to the left ankle injury he was already carrying when he began the game, "I went into the tackle a little light because of my ankle and tried to compensate for that. I'd have been better off not doing it at all... It's just gone from one thing to another thing. Maybe it's time for me to just say, `I need the rest,' and get it right and don't come back until it's right."
