LA Galaxy's Beckham back with no regrets after suspension

LA Galaxy star David Beckham says he does not regret his actions which landed him a two-match MLS ban.

The 37-year old midfielder was banned by the league's Disciplinary Committee for 'conduct unacceptable and detrimental to the league's public image' when he kicked the ball at San Jose Earthquakes' Sam Cronin on July 1.

Beckham copped a ban and a fine from MLS but is now eligible to play again and feels he was hardly done by as the match officials were well below their best.

"I think you got to ask the people that decide these decisions, because they seem to miss everything else aside from the main talking point," Beckham said ahead of the weekend's clash with Portland Timbers.

"They miss everything else going on around them. I think Bruce [Arena, head coach] has said it already about the referee not having control of the game.

"Did I deserve a yellow card? Yeah, I probably did deserve a yellow card. Because of my reaction," Beckham added. "But did I deserve the second game? That's for other people to talk about, and other people talk about it very well, by the way.

"I never regret anything in my life, in my career. There's moments I wish [it] hadn't happened, but I always try to go through life and my career never regretting stuff. It's over and done with now, as far as I'm concerned."
