贝克汉姆受到批评

Beckham Criticised

  David Beckham has come under fire from his Los Angeles Galaxy teammate 队友 Landon Donovan for what he sees as a lack of commitment to the club.

  Beckham, who has recently returned to Los Angeles from five months on loan to Italian team AC Milan, was also described as being stingy, selfish, and having a negative influence on the players around him.

  Landon Donovan, who is the captain of the United States international side, made the comments in an interview for a book called The Beckham Experiment.

  But Beckham hit back at Donovan for criticising him in public, without talking to him face-to-face first.

  "It is unprofessional in my eyes," said Beckham, who plans to speak to Donovan in person 本人 soon. When Beckham says "in my eyes", he means in my opinion, or as I see it.

  Landon Donovan also thought Beckham should try harder for someone who is paid so much:

  "Does the fact that he earns that much more money come into it? Yeah. If someone's paying you more than double anybody in the league, the least we expect is that you show up to every game, whether you are suspended or not. Show up and train hard, show up and play hard."

  He said he thought Beckham's commitment had waned after the departure of coach Ruud Gullitt last year.

  "Something happened at some point last year where a switch went off, and that's what I want to talk to him about, and we'll figure that out man-to-man."

  Donovan said he didn't regret making the comments but he regretted the way they came out in public first, and looked forward to the chance to speak to Beckham one-on-one.

  Beckham said he would not be read the unofficial book, which he dubbed as "just another one on the shelf ".

  LA Galaxy played their first game of the new Major League Soccer (MLS) season on Saturday and Beckham returns for his first training session on Monday.

  Asked how he would adjust to the pace of MLS after playing in Italy he said, "It's not going to be difficult because we've got talent on our team.

  "I think the experiences I've had can only help this team."
