David Beckham Talks About Wanting to Leave LA Galaxy

Are Beckham's Statements Starting to Turn You Off?

We've been hearing stories all week about David Beckham trying to extend his stay in Milan, and now he's even more adamant about leaving the LA Galaxy. Today he reiterated how much he wants to stay overseas, saying, "At the moment, Milan is more important than money. I want to think about football before everything else. I said in a clear manner what I think, I want to stay at Milan because I’ve rediscovered myself as a football player." At this point Beckham sounds bit disrespectful to his old team and the league that gave him so much money to come to the States. So tell us — are his statements starting to turn you off?

"I want to think about football before anything else" It's a shame he was only thinking about fame and his wallet when he transfered to LA Galaxy. I hope he's stuck there!

Hell no! He has his reasons! IMO he already reached his top game when he was at Manchester United and won the Champions League and all that stuff, but I totally understand the fact he wants to be in a REAL football team as Milan AC that competes in REAL and competitive leagues, not that joke of league that the US has.

Part of being a professional athlete is being professional, which David is not being. I still think he's a hottie, but he's dropping down in the ranks for me.

"Awww, the expensive show pony wants to be a race horse again!" :ROTFL: I think what Posh and David care the most (besides their kids) is to be "famous".

Yes that´s nothing new but that doent make it a good thing. I know how you feel when your player says that he doesnt want to stay in the team in the middle of the season, and sadly that happen very often...It was what happened with Beckham in Madrid too. What Ronaldo did you mean??Cristiano or "fat" Ronaldpo??cuz it was a saga with both...

Yes, but Milan knew that beforehand. Apparently, they were fine with getting him on loan until March, so they can hardly complain. I agree that Beckham probably shouldn't have been that vocal about it though, simply because, as you said, it makes things awkward, if the deal doesn't work out. That's nothing new either though, just remember Ronaldo and that whole Real Madrid saga.

Yeah Mädchen but it is Milan which is paying for not having him until May, so if he wants to stay in Milan and Milan wants him to stay then clubs must have an agreement, and Galaxy said beckham´s a high pric, so what if Milan doesnt want to pay so much?It´s awkward coming back to a team in which you said you didt want to play. Anyway I think is awesome that he stays in Milan but players should think a lot what is going to happen in his future before to sign a contract.

That doesn't turn me off at all..the fact that he basically says that staying where he's happy is more important than the money is pretty cool.

Yes, it's unusual, but that's just because the MLS season runs from March to November, not from August to May like most European leagues.

Mädchen you´re right that happens very often, I was confused cuz when a club "borrows" a player for a while it use to be for half of the season or whole season, not just 3 moths, it is kinda of stupid pay in january for a player who cant stay til the end of this season cuz he should come back to LA in March.. I know this can happen, but it is weird right??

Awww, the expensive show pony wants to be a race horse again! :(It's pity he didn't give so much thought to his legacy as a player when he decided to abandon his credibility and take the big bucks to play amongst third rate players in the US. Every pundit going slammed him for that move at the time saying he would be better off finishing out his career gracefully in Europe, but of course Mr and Mrs Superstar had to go for the money and the spotlight instead. :oy: I hope Galaxy lock him into his contract and refuse to let him transfer!

Why they gave him so much $$$ I have no idea. No one in America cares about soccer, unless you are about 6 years old...Seriously. I understand they are trying to make it another big sport like footballs & baseball for another revenue stream (I used to work for Nike) buuuut...the US isn't ready for it.
