Beckham Left Out Of Final PSG Game

David Beckham’s retirement from football was cemented when he was not included in Paris Saint Germain’s squad for this weekend’s fixture.

PSG play Lorient on Sunday and Beckham apparently requested not to be included. Beckham announced his retirement on 16 May and was given a tremendous ovation from the crowd when he was substituted in PSG’s 3-1 win over Brest.

Another reason for his exclusion is the playing surface at the Stade du Moustoir, which is comprised of artificial grass. Beckham said that playing on the surface could aggravate his previous Achilles injury problems.

PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti suggested after the win last weekend that he would be left out of the trip to Lorient. Ancelotti is also rumoured to be moving on from PSG, although the club has not confirmed anything yet.

The 38-year-old has been in professional football for 20 years and has won 19 trophies, including winning the league in four different countries. He was made captain for his final game last week and came off after 81 minutes, after providing an assist for Blaise Matuidi’s goal.
