How Beckham got booted from youth game

While guest on Jonathan Ross's British late night show, David Beckham revealed that he had been ejected from a youth soccer game in Los Angeles. The game was one that took place before his son, Romeo, was set to take the field.

Beckham said, "I was watching the kids play the other day, it was the game just before they were playing. It was the younger kids of Romeo’s club, and they’re playing in the game and there was a penalty given. And the kids are 7 years old and he sent the kid off.

"And I was like, 'Come on, he's 7 years old, referee, you can’t send him off.' And he looked at me and was like, 'Yes, I can.'  And I was like, 'Ok, well, you can’t, he’s 7 years old.'

"And he came over and gave me a red card. He told me to get out of the park. For real. The gate was only 20 yards away and I waited and went back in when my son’s game was on."
