International

Becks' PSG Debut Coming Soon

David Beckham’s Paris Saint-Germain debut may arrive earlier than suspected as the 37-year-old rapidly recovers fitness.

The England international had been expected to make a first appearance for PSG in the Coupe de France tie with Marseille on February 27.

However, after spending the week training with the club’s staff at the National Tennis Centre in London, he may make his bow as early as next week against Sochaux.

"He's worked really well, and is going to continue through to Friday. Next week, when we get back from Valencia, he'll be with us," Ancelotti said.

"He needs two weeks' work. Perhaps he'll be available for the Sochaux game or the week after. There's no particular problem, just improving his physical condition."

Beckham has not featured in a competitive match since the MLS Cup final with Los Angeles Galaxy on December 1 but revealed that he is improving his condition rapidly.

"It's going really well. I feel much better than I did two weeks ago. We're working hard and I like that. Simon and Gael have done some fantastic work,” he said.  

“I've trained the whole week and I'm really looking forward to teaming up with the whole squad.

"I'm impatient to meet my new team-mates and discover the Parc des Princes. There are some great players in the team, and I'm really looking forward to training with them and working hard for the club. I hope to be able to help them win something soon."
