QPR skipper Barton branded MADMAN by LA Galaxy over Beckham attack

QPR skipper Joey Barton has been branded a "MADMAN" by LA Galaxy.

Barton has attacked Manchester United legend David Beckham on Twitter.

He unleashed his fury after watching Beckham's H&M advert during the Super Bowl and wrote online: "Not a****d if they're Beckham's or not. 9.99 pounds for a pair of gruds for H and M (sic) is an outrage."

He added: "Do one, Becks. They cost about 1p to make in a sweat shop in the Third World, Is there no limit to what 'Brand Beckham' will endorse for a pound note?"

A spokesman for the LA Galaxy player insisted to the Daily Star that the range was being made "under the strictest ethical guidelines." He added anyone who accused Beckham of using child labour was a "madman".
