DAVID BECKHAM has explained that his new franchise Inter Miami FC wanted “something different” for their team crest having been trolled by some for the design.

The England legend took a load of stick of social media following the release of the new badge that involves two herons.

Fans also questioned the name of the club with one describing it as “something a 9-year-old would come up with.”

Another joked: “Pretty sure I’ve come up against a 5-a-side team called Inter Miami playing Powerleague before.”

The badge was created by designer Kimou Meyer who revealed the process took a whopping three years from start to finish.

In a video released by Inter Miami’s official Twitter page, Beckham admitted that he wanted to “gravitate to the old South American crests” and it was something “that really needed to go into the logo.”

He added: “Once I met Kimou, I knew they were the right people to work with. I knew that creatively, they would come up with something different.”

Kimou claimed that Beckham “liked the idea of a monogram-inspired mark with a symbol that would represent the club.”

And so they came up with two herons standing back-to-back with their legs forming an ‘M’ shape – symbolising Miami.

The herons represent the city who migrated from South America to stay in Miami.

Inter Miami is proper five-a-side on a Wednesday night.

Imagine spending years trying to establish a football club, only to then call it ‘Inter Miami’. Bin.

Beckham’s MLS team is called Inter Miami?! Urgh, that’s terrible.
