Chivas USA midfielder Jesse Marsch has slammed David Beckham's treatment by LA Galaxy management.

Marsch, who sparked a melee by bringing down Beckham with a brutal challenge just before half-time of last week's 3-0 derby win, rapped: "It is hard to figure out what is going on with the Galaxy. It is almost not about what is on the field, it is about everything else.

"I was shocked Beckham played. He put in a good effort against Germany and then comes halfway across the world to do it again. They have got to sort out what is happening on the field so they can look like a real team."
