London, Mar 16(ANI): Injured England midfielder David Beckham's wife Victoria is on way to Helsinki to be with the shattered star.
Beckham had a successful two-hour operation in Finland on Monday, less than 24 hours after rupturing his left Achilles tendon during AC Milan's Serie A game against Chievo at the San Siro.
The 34-year-old is likely to head back to Milan once he has recovered from his operation, while Victoria will return to Los Angeles to pick up their three sons.
Victoria had already planned to take Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz to Italy for an Easter holiday with their dad.
The injury has come as a big disappointment for Beckham, who clearly wanted to be part of England manager Fabio Capello's squad for this summer's World Cup in South Africa, and had worked very hard to have a chance.
"David has been crying and is in deep shock. Football is his life and he feels like it has been unfairly taken away from him. He's just so low," The Sun quoted a friend, as saying.
"The only reason he carried on playing so hard in Europe and was away from his family for so long was to get to his last World Cup. He thinks it's all been for nothing," the friend added. (ANI)
