David Beckham is back in Los Angeles ahead of Inter Miami’s showdown with his former team LA Galaxy on Sunday night.
The Miami co-owner enjoyed five years as a Galaxy player late in his career, helping the club win two MLS Cups before heading to Paris Saint-Germain for the final stop of his legendary career.
However, this weekend he is battling against his former club as Miami looks to make it two wins out of two this season against Los Angeles on Sunday night.
Beckham was seen arriving at Dignity Health Sports Park a few hours before kickoff, signing autographs, posing for photos and walking on the same grass where he used to ply his trade more than a decade ago.

The likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are aiming for their second straight MLS win after getting going with a 2-0 win over Real Salt Lake City on Wednesday night.
Suárez made his debut for the team after completing a move from Gremio at the end of December, and the former Liverpool and Barcelona forward set up Diego Gómez for the second goal of the night.
Although at the end of the night, Suarez was seen walking with a noticeable limp in the closing stages of the team’s season-opening victory.
He has made no secret of the fact that it is difficult for him to play regularly due to a knee problem that has affected him in the latter stages of his career.
But despite a grueling pre-season tour around the world and a lack of rest, Tata Martino hinted he would not rotate for the weekend trip to California.
And both Suarez and Messi were subsequently named in their starting line-up on Sunday night.

“Most of the changes we had to make were for physical reasons,” Martino said about the possibility of resting his big names.
“Maybe we have to consider that, but not for the second game of the season. No no no.
‘We are just starting to compete. “Hopefully everyone will be well on Friday and whoever is ready will travel.”
