Not everyone in Los Angeles is thrilled about the impending arrival of David Beckham. Galaxy midfielder Peter Vagenas is feeling a little bit chafed and irritated, and I think his frustration might have something to do with the fact that Beckham will be earning roughly 500 times what Vagenas takes in.

Vagenas opened up to BBC Five Live:

"I think, as we all are fans of soccer, he is David Beckham and a wise man told me you're worth what you negotiate. But at the same time, of course there's resentment, I'd be lying if I said there wasn't."

"On the one hand, more power to him, and on the other you say 'why can't I be getting some of that?'."

I think it's because you're Peter Vagenas.
