European champions Barcelona take on Spurs in the Wembley Cup tonight with the London side looking to continue their good pre-season form.

David Beckham insists he is staying with the LA Galaxy despite being on the receiving end of a hostile response from some fans on his return to the club.

The England midfielder was booed by sections of the crowd at his first home game after a loan spell at Milan.

But he said: “At the end of the day, I play my game, whether I get booed or not doesn’t matter to me.”

He also denied reports he is planning to put his Los Angelese home up for sale, saying: “That’s not true… it’s just another rumour.”

Beckham angered some Galaxy supporters by missing the first half of the Major League Soccer season in order to play for Milan until the conclusion of the Italian season.

Beckham said he could handle any negative reaction in LA sparked by his decision to remain in Europe.

“It is not about whether I can move on. To be honest, all I’m going to do is play my football, and as long as it’s good enough for myself and the team nothing else matters,” he added.

“I don’t like my family seeing that and hearing that (abuse), from an organised group of fans.

“I think it was disrespectful, some of the things that were being said and also some of the banners, but it is what it is.”

Beckham has a five-year MLS contract, which began in 2007 and allows for him to spend the off-season on loan at a European club.

He added he will be available for England’s friendly against the Netherlands in August, if selected.

“Everyone knows that I’ve always been available for my country whether it be a friendly or a qualifying game, so I’m always available,” he said.

“I’ve spoken to (Galaxy coach) Bruce (Arena) and he’s more than happy that if I get called up for my country he and the club totally support that, so it’s not a problem.”
