David Beckham sidelined with knee injury

Footballer David Beckham could be sidelined for up to two months with a painful knee injury.

Forbes is reporting the Real Madrid midfielder injured the lateral ligament of his right knee in his team’s 1-1 draw with Getafe on Sunday in the Spanish league.

Beckham is expected to have a scan today on his affected knee.

According to Forbes, Becks was taken off the field in the 69th minute, 37 minutes after teammate Jose Antonio Reyes was carried off on a stretcher with a similar injury to his left knee.

Beckham’s injury “is serious, and the other could be something important. We will have to see,” Madrid coach Fabio Capello said Sunday to the AP.

Becks rejected a two-year contract extension with Madrid to accept a 250+ million dollar deal with the Los Angeles Galaxy on a five-year deal after his contract with the Spanish club expires in June.

Posh and David are house hunting still in Los Angeles.
