Former England captain David Beckham will sit out the next game after he received a ban from Major League Soccer (MLS) for kicking a ball at an opponent in Los Angeles Galaxy's loss at San Jose.


Beckham received the ban on Thursday for kicking the ball at San Jose's Sam Cronin during the 3-4 loss on Saturday. Cronin was down in the penalty box at the time, and Beckham's kick set off a prolonged argument between the teams, reported Xinhua.

Beckham was issued a yellow card for the incident. He missed the Galaxy's home loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday under suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards.

The struggling defending MLS champions' next game is Sunday at Chicago.
