LONDON (AP) - Before returning to Los Angeles, David Beckham treated Tottenham staff to a traditional English lunch of savory pie and mashed potato as his training stint with the club ended.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp says Beckham had the meals delivered to the club’s training ground in east London from “somewhere up the road, and we all tucked in.”

Redknapp, who was brought up on the dish in London’s East End, says “some of the foreign lads were not too sure what to make of pie and mash, so we had their portions.”

Beckham was limited to training after being denied the chance to play competitive matches for Tottenham by the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The Major League Soccer season begins for Beckham against the Seattle Sounders on March 15.
