David Beckham Gets Kicked in the Nuts
David Beckham‘s family jewels get attacked by C.F. Pachuca’s Christian Gimenez during the first half of the SuperLiga final soccer game at the Home Depot Center on Wednesday in Carson, Calif. He then sprained his right knee when he fell and left the game in the 33rd minute.
“It’s just gone from one thing to another thing,” said Becks, whose nagging left ankle injury has forced him to miss seven games since he joined the team July 13.
“I hate losing,” he added after the Los Angeles Galaxy were beaten 4-3 on penalty kicks by Pachuca. “Maybe it’s time for me to just say, ‘I need the rest,’ and get it right and don’t come back until it’s right. I’m going to have a scan tomorrow and we’ll see the full extent of what it is and how long I’ll be out, but at the moment, it doesn’t feel great. I’m devastated to have been taken out of the game when I was because I was looking forward to this game. I’ve been given the rest to try and get my ankle feeling better and it felt better.”
Becks added, “At this stage, it’s hard to tell [if it's a strain or a sprain], but it doesn’t feel good. With a ligament strain, it’s 4-to-6 weeks. We’ll have to wait and see.”
