David Beckham: Capitán! yay!
David Beckham: Captain! yay!
“It was emotional tonight,” Beckham said. “It was the first time I played against them since I left and every time I see the star for the club, the players for the club I played with, it brings back great memories.”
Beckham donned the captain’s armband for the match against his former team and played 62 minutes before coming off the field. While the Galaxy did not score while he was on the field – their lone goal came five minutes after he was substituted for – Beckham had a chance to beat his old team with a 27-yard free kick in the first half.
“I’m always up for every game but it has been an emotional week,” Beckham said. “I had a few days to spend with my family and with my daughter and I felt good today, felt ready to play. She’s sleeping great believe it or not. Our sons weren’t like that so it’s a whole new experience, a great new experience.”
Beckham paid homage to his seven-day-old during the match.
“I wore the pink and white boots tonight in the honor of my little girl. It’s just a one-off but that means a lot,” he said. “[She’s] an amazing addition to our family.”
