Victoria Beckham's aloof demeanour has upset the wives of other English soccer stars during their stay at a training base in Sardinia - where the singer is staying with husband DAVID as he prepares for the EURO 2004 championships.

The former SPICE GIRL has angered the players' wives - who have gone out of their way to befriend her and offer support over David's recent alleged infidelities - by being "unfriendly".

A source tells British newspaper the DAILY MAIL, "Victoria's behaviour is causing problems. All of the wives and girlfriends are nagging their men to ask David why she is being so unfriendly.

"It is the first time she has really spent any time with them, as she often doesn't accompany David to the tournaments for long periods.

"They feel like they have gone out of their way to welcome her to the camp."

The only woman Beckham is reportedly friendly with is NANCY DELL'OLIO - girlfriend of British soccer coach SVEN GORAN ERIKSSON.

The source adds, "Nancy knows that as the manager's partner she has a special role to be friendly to everyone. As the captain's wife Victoria should be the same."
