Alex Ferguson David Beckham fallout: Why did David Beckham leave Man United?

David Beckham's relationship with Man United manager Sir Alex Ferguson deteriorated in the early 2000s after the England international's marriage. The winger lost his place in the side to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer early in the 2002-03 season and things took a turn for the worse when the Man United manager allegedly kicked a boot at Beckham hitting him above the eye which required stitches. Sir Alex Ferguson later criticised Beckham in his autobiography for not being fair on his teammates referring to the incident where he was given permission to miss training to look after his son Brooklyn, who had gastroenteritis, while his wife Victoria Beckham was photographed at a London Fashion Week event on the same night.
