Ex-Man Utd star Beckham insists he is back for LA Galaxy on Sunday
David Beckham says he will certainly be back for LA Galaxy's clash with FC Dallas at Pizza Hut Park on Sunday. The former Manchester United captain is back in London for today's Royal Wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton but has made it clear he will return to the States and be in Dallas with the league-leading Galaxy.
"I'll go to the wedding on Friday," Beckham said. "I fly straight out of London on Saturday morning and I arrive [in Dallas] before the team on Saturday."
Beckham said that Galaxy coach Bruce Arena understands the situation and is fine with the travel as long as he is back in time for the game.
"Bruce understands and the club understands," he added. "It's important. [Arena] knows that I'll be sacrificing to travel to turn up in Dallas.
"Bruce said to me if I wanted to not go to the game [that's fine], but it's important that I'm there. It's important that the fans see me there, and I'll do that.
"Obviously, it's not ideal with the travel, but it's a royal wedding and those don't come around very often."
