Emotional Beckham Says Farewell

David Beckham paid tribute to fans in an emotional farewell following the final game of his career on Saturday.

Beckham set up Blaise Matuidi for his goal, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic struck twice before the England great was removed in the second-half to a standing ovation.

The tearful 38-year-old collected his Ligue 1 winners' medal and said that he was now looking forward to some time with his family.

"To finish my career here is special. Paris is the most beautiful place in the world. I'm sad to go," he told reporters after the match.

"I feel a lot of satisfaction and emotion. Tonight is the end of my career, for sure. I've done my time at all the clubs where I've been, be it Manchester United, Real Madrid and LA Galaxy.

"Now, we'll see what happens. After a 22-year career, I'm going to take a few months off to relax with my family. I said before that, one way or another, I would stay in Paris. It's special for me here and I want to continue to be part of PSG, one way or another."
