David Beckham’s Inter Miami in crisis after 5-0 thrashing in sixth successive loss leaves them rock-bottom of MLS table

DAVID BECKHAM’s Inter Miami are bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference after a shocking start to the 2021 season.

The team, coached by Phil Neville, were thrashed 5-0 at home on Wednesday evening and have now lost six games in-a-row.

Miami have won just two of their 12 MLS games this term and are 12 points adrift of the play-offs following their defeat to New England Revolution.

They’ve also managed just one goal in their last 540 minutes of football, losing all five of those games.

It’s been a turbulent first year for Beckham’s new club, with the football icon accused of nepotism for hiring manager Neville in January.

The 44-year-old coach came through Manchester United’s academy with Beckham and the pair co-own League Two side Salford City.

The club also received a £1.4million fine by MLS bosses in May for a series of financial irregularities, partly relating to the signing of Blaise Matuidi.

And star player Gonzalo Higuain recently admitted he thought he could play with a cigarette in his mouth due to the standard of football.

As well as having Matuidi and Higuian on their books, Miami have also signed ex-Premier League stars Ryan Shawcross and Kieran Gibbs.

The players need to take a long, hard look at themselves – and so do I.

Phil Neville

Speaking after his team’s most recent loss, Neville insisted he has the full support of the Miami owners – including his mate Becks.

The former England Women manager said: “I feel their full support – I always have done.

“They don’t need to tell me about their concerns because I have the same concerns.

“I’ve been in football long enough and I know the consequences – that’s no problem to me. We’re doing everything in our power, we just need better performances on the field.

“I’ve got great responsibility and I’m accountable for everything that I do. We’re on a run at the moment that puts me under pressure.”

Although Miami’s form is dreadful, support for Beckham’s glamorous franchise remains strong.

France internationals Paul Pogba and Presnel Kimpembe watched the game against New England, while heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury was spotted at Miami’s Fort Lauderdale stadium in May.

United star Pogba, 28, has just a year remaining on his Old Trafford contract, with reports linking him with Paris Saint-Germain.
