The incident happened when Beckham attended a game at his younger son, Romeo‘s club, and got into it with a referee who sent one of the seven-year-old players off the field due to a penalty. That got the L.A. Galaxy midfielder’s gander up real good, and he started in on the ref over the unfairness of it all…
“I was watching the kids play the other day, it was the younger kids of Romeo‘s club, and there was a penalty given, and the kids are seven years old and he sent the kid off. And I was like, 'Come on, he’s seven, referee, you can’t send him off.’”
Beckham vented on The Jonathan Ross Show in London.
It seems the referee considered himself the king of his own field and was having none of it from the famous footie.
“He looked at me and was like, 'Yes, I can.’ And he came over and gave me a red card. He told me to get out of the park. For real. The gate was only 20 yards away and I waited and went back in when my son’s game was on.”
Pretty decent of David Beckham to take up the cause of a kid not even his own, and get ejected off the field by some snooty ref. Guess he just won the hearts of a whole league of future football superstars who’ll look back on this incident with pride and fondness in their hearts…
