He has owned the Florida team since 2019.

The former Manchester United ace, 46, cut a dapper figure as he sat in the stands, wearing a black suit with the team crest on the blazer pocket.

He wore aviator sunglasses for protection from the sun, while his short haircut didn’t have an out of place strand.

The team lost to Team New York and missed out on a place in the MLS playoffs, leaving manager Phil Neville disappointed.

The exit comes after David’s £ 40million sponsorship deal with EA Sports appears threatened after the video game giant refused to back his decision to face the controversial Qatar 2022 World Cup.

He has come under scrutiny over his lucrative deal to be the face of the tournament, given the Gulf state’s atrocious human rights record.

David was appointed ambassador for the California-based video game company last year, and when questioned about Qatar’s concerns, EA Sports said: “The principles of fairness and human rights are fundamental for Electronic Arts “.

But the company has pointedly declined to say how it has reconciled that position with its agreement to promote a nation where homosexuality is illegal and women’s freedom is severely restricted.

They said: “We do not comment on the details of other partnerships of our Brand Ambassadors.”

The lack of support increases the pressure on David after Amnesty International challenged him to speak out about the “deeply worrying” situation in Qatar.

Sources close to him say his team are increasingly anxious about the fury, not least because EA Sports is seen as “very sensitive” to criticism.
