And after finishing bottom of Group A at the tournament in Orlando, Beckham reminded fans that "Manchester United wasn't built in a day."

Taking to Instagram, he said: "Sometimes the road is long and you need to take a breather.

"Manchester United, Real Madrid, La Liga and the Premier League wasn’t built in a day.

"Teams, players and clubs need time to flourish but when they do, all the hard times seem so distant.

"It’s important to take time to reflect on what we have achieved so far.

"I’m proud of my team, our club, and the amazing fans that we have. Patience is a virtue."

Inter Miami manager Diego Alonso admits the club must do better although he is expecting a number of new signing to help his cause.

He said: "We are realistic and we know we have a lot of work to do to get better.

"We have four weeks to improve, and we expect a few new players to join us, which should help us become a better team.”

Their first competitive fixture ended in a 1-0 defeat to Los Angeles FC thanks to a goal from former Arsenal man Carlos Vela.

They then lost to D.C. United, Orlando City, Philadelphia and New York City although each have been to a solitary goal.

Fans had high expectations for Inter Miami with the club having been previously linked with the likes of Edinson Cavani and Cristiano Ronaldo.

But their high profile signing remains £9.5million Mexican playmaker Rodolfo Pizarro.
