"I'm sure he [David Beckham] is not pleased about it. But that’s not the issue in the game. The issue in the game was that 11 players from New England soundly outplayed 11 players from the
Galaxy. I don’t [know] of any players that would be happy about coming out at halftime. ... I just felt we needed a little bit more. We needed to make a change in the midfield. It was purely a
coach's decision. I couldn't change 11 players. That's what I told the team at halftime. If I had 11 substitutions, I would have considered that."
