David Beckham: Soccer Legend Was Right to Challenge Referee at Kids’ Game in LA

World football legend and international superstar David Beckham was ordered to leave the sidelines during a children’s game that was taking place before his son’s game.

Yes, this is true.

Beckham revealed the story on The Jonathan Ross Show:

"I was watching the kids play the other day, it was the younger kids of Romeo's club, and there was a penalty given. And the kids are seven years old and he sent the kid off. And I was like, 'Come on, he's seven, referee, you can't send him off.' He looked at me and was like, 'Yes, I can.' 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."

If you have ever been to a children’s organized sporting event of any kind, you know how out of line these parents can get. With that considered, I still have to agree with Beckham on this case 100 percent.
