David Beckham’s dreams of playing in a fourth World Cup tournament looked doomed after suffering an Achilles tendon injury during AC Milan’s faceoff against Chievo on Sunday.
“A rupture of the Achilles tendon is suspected,” says a rep for AC Milan, where Beckham has been on loan since January.
AC Milan Vice-President Adriano Galliani predicts hunky athletic ace could be sidelined for “five or six months.”
“He’s devastated by the injury. He’s fearful of what it could mean for his World Cup hopes. We will see in the morning the full extent of the injury. Victoria is flying out to him immediately. She is naturally worried about him,” a spokesperson for Beckham said shortly after the soccer star was seen by doctors.
The World Cup gets underway in South Africa on June 11.
