Beckham 'happy' at Galaxy

David Beckham insists he is happy to continue playing for the Los Angeles Galaxy – and that he has the support of the people who matter at the Major League Soccer club.

David Beckham insists he is happy to continue playing for the Los Angeles Galaxy – and that he has the support of the people who matter at the Major League Soccer club.

The England midfielder clashed with another Galaxy fan just one week after an ugly confrontation with spectators during his first home game for the club after returning from a five-month loan spell in Italy with AC Milan.

However, he said: “When it happens sometimes it can become a distraction for me and the team.

“But the team have done well to deal with the situation and I’ve got the support of the players – that’s the most important thing, to have the support of the team, owners and management.

“I’m happy to be playing for this team and I’m enjoying it.”

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old hopes a minor back injury will not prevent him playing in Saturday’s exhibition match against Barcelona.

He added on Sky Sports News: “I’ve got a slight back pain but it’s not a problem.

“I’ve done some work in the gym and unless I get a bad reaction, I think it’ll be fine. Fingers crossed it’ll be good.”
