Beckham’s Achilles RuptureBy: jen | March 16th, 2010
It was one of those freak injuries. No contact, no speedy sprint down the flank, no hard plant for one of his trademark crosses. It was just a step.
Beckham’s surgeon has confirmed that David will be out at least 6 months following his surgery yesterday to repair his torn achilles tendon. Needless to say, he is out for the World Cup, and will be out for the entire MLS season as well barring some freakish, Charlie Davies-like recovery.
His injury leaves me feeling sad. I’m bummed that he will miss the Galaxy season. I’m frustrated that he won’t be a part of the England squad this June. But more than that, I am sad for the man. He wanted this World Cup soooo badly. This was his last push to play on the world stage. We may still see him in South Africa 2010, but it won’t be as a player.
