Just hours after Mohamed bin Hammam â€” president of the Asian Football Federation and a Qatari administrator â€” was banned from football for life for attempting to buy votes ahead of last monthâ€™s FIFA presidential election, Beckham was training with LA Galaxy in California before yesterdayâ€™s friendly with Manchester City.
Beckham said: "There is obviously something wrong when you look at the investigations since the vote and some of the things that have come out.
"At the time you donâ€™t suspect there is something wrong. When people tell you to your face that you have got their vote, you want to believe them. Then the vote happened and, yeah, you start to think, 'This is a little bit weird'."
"It just felt unfair. Nothing against the countries who have got the bids. So the situation we see now leaves a sick feeling in your mouth."
