Los Angeles (US), Oct.2 (ANI): L A Galaxy are suspicious that David Beckham is putting his England World Cup hopes ahead of their MLS championship push.
The midfield ace, 34, nursing an Achilles injury, is rated as "questionable" to take on Chicago Fire at home in a crunch clash tonight.
Galaxy need one win from their last three games to clinch their first play-off spot in four years, but there is a growing feeling that Becks would rather protect his inflamed tendon ahead of the World Cup qualifiers with Ukraine and Belarus as he bids to stay in Fabio Capello's England squad for South Africa next year.
The Sun quoted a club insider, as saying: "We know the injury has been a problem for David in the past and it has flared up again ecently. But it seems he is being ultra-cautious about testing it at the moment." (ANI)
