Beckham makes clean tackle

MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO PICK] David Beckham made his best tackle of the year on Tuesday while playing for Manchester United against Juventus in the Gary Neville Testimonial game. While on leave once again from the Los Angeles Galaxy, Beckham corralled a field invader.

Beckham’s tackling skills (or lack thereof) have earned him a league-high five yellow cards in MLS this season, but at Old Trafford he succeeded in cleanly capturing a kid running from security guards, who escorted the invader off the field after Beckham made the stop.

Beckham will sit out the Galaxy’s Wednesday game against Houston after playing 90 minutes in the testimonial honoring his former teammate and best man.

    Clean Tackle? He grabbed the shirt! Should be another yellow.

    Good for him. If my current boss would let me take mini-vacations every few weeks, I'd do it to. If the Galaxy dont win MLS Cup this year with Beck's in tow, then his MLS career is over, and he wont be wearing a PL kit again either, so enjoy this last look at him in Manchester.
