Becks was confronted with a mixture of boos and cheers as well as taunting chants and banners as he played his first match back with his home team after a five-month loan to Milan. At half time the jeering became too much and Becks tried to jump over the barriers into the crowd to face the angry fans but was held back by security. One fan even tried to jump down from his seat to get to Becks, but was escorted away before he could.
The row started earlier this year when Becks insulted Galaxy fans by saying that he preferred playing for Milan as the quality of football was better there than at Galaxy. Although some Galaxy fans still cheered for Becks, he reacted to other upset fans as if he didn’t see it coming. He also tried to make the excuse that he was trying to shake a fan’s hand, which seems rather unconvincing!
