Beckham back training with LA Galaxy after words with captain

3:28 pm on 14 July 2009

David Beckham's returned to training with his L.A. Galaxy football side saying his conflict with team mate Landon Donovan is water under the bridge.

Donovan strongly criticised Beckham in excerpts of a soon to be released book "The Beckham Experiment" saying he was a bad team mate and an unsuitable captain.

The former England skipper upset many in L.A. with his decision to extend his loan spell with Italian club AC Milan and miss the first half of the Major League Soccer season.

Beckham hit back by calling Donovan "unprofessional" for airing his feelings in the media.

Beckham says he's met with Donovan and club coach Bruce Arena to clear up matters but refused to say what was said.

Donovan says he regrets saying some of things he has but believes some good may come from the incident.

Beckham has also reiterated his hope of returning to Milan when the MLS season is over but also stated he intends to see out the remaining two years of his contract with the Galaxy.
