Beckham gets booed in home return with Galaxy

sports Updated: Jul 20, 2009 10:40 IST

David Beckham was booed more than cheered during introductions on Sunday when he made his Major League Soccer return in the Los Galaxy’s friendly against AC Milan.

Beckham was booed the first time he touched the ball as the game got under way. He was booed again when he took his first corner.

One of the Galaxy’s fan groups held up several signs deriding Beckham, who has missed the first half of the Major League Soccer season while he was on a five-month loan to AC Milan.

“Go home fraud,” one sign read.

Beckham will only play six more home games this season.

Earlier this year, Beckham said he wanted to remain with the Italian club rather than return to the Galaxy because he believed the level of play is much better in Europe than in the US.
