Goldenballs back after lay-off
David Beckham returned from a six-month spell on the sidelines with an Achilles injury in LA Galaxy’s 3-1 victory over Columbus Crew.
The ex-England skipper looked over-eager and understandably rusty on his comeback. So over-eager and rusty, in fact, that he was yellow carded for an assault on Emmanuel Ekpo.
He said: “I’ve never been out of the game for such a long time. It’s been a quick recovery and I’m happy with that. I thought I was ready for 90 minutes four months ago but after 10 minutes on the field, I felt like I was dying.”
Ekpo probably felt pretty close to death’s door too.
