Bye Bye Becks…

beckham1rex_468x592So in what is already a very tumultuous relationship with David Beckham, the LA Galaxy and MLS, England National Team Coach is now saying he will not include Beckham on the World Cup squad unless he leaves the MLS.  Per ESPN:

“Beckham knows well that if he doesn’t return to a big European championship in December he’ll have no chance for the World Cup,” Capello was quoted as saying by Monday’s La Gazzetta dello Sport.”

This is blatant disrespect for the MLS and it actually offends me.  I’m not going to argue that the MLS is better than playing for AC Milan… its not, but that he makes its seem like because Beckham is in the US hes not even playing soccer is just wrong.  I know he was leaving as soon as he could no matter what, but I really want Beckham’s leaving of the MLS to be a good one, to help grow the league and get other big name players over here, but this really doesn’t help. At least he has an excuse now.  I’ve never had much respect for the England National team, for all the supposed superstars they never do anything, but now I’m very much against them and their blatant anti-American bias.  Its almost like they fear the US becoming a real soccer threat and don’t want us to beat them at another thing after that Revolutionary War…
