Beckham almost did a Cantona against jeering fans

Posted on July 20, 2009. Filed under: Soccer | Tags: , , |

David Beckham got involved in an ugly confrontation with fans at his first home game for the Los Angeles Galaxy after returning from Italy.

The former England captain attempted to jump over a barrier as he left the field at half-time into a section of the crowd that had been jeering him. He was held back by security staff, members of whom were also needed to restrain an angry fan who left his seat and rushed towards the footballer.

“I tried to shake one of the guy’s hands but he didn’t want any of it,” Beckham said. “That’s the way it is.”
