New signing begins work at the Parc des Princes.
David Beckham has trained with his new Paris Saint-Germain team-mates for the first time and is in line to make his debut for the club at the weekend.
Beckham signed on a free transfer in the January transfer window following the completion of his contract with MLS champions Los Angeles Galaxy but had yet to set foot on a training pitch with his new team until Wednesday.
The 37-year-old watched from the stands as PSG defeated Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday night and took part in his first training with the Carlo Ancelotti’s side 24 hours later in front of a large media contingent desperate to see him back in action.
Beckham had spent the previous week in London working with PSG’s assistant manager Paul Clement, who was with Ancelotti at Chelsea, on his fitness before being integrated into the team on Wednesday.
He could now make his debut in a PSG shirt in the Ligue 1 clash at Sochaux on Sunday, a game which is already sold out and oversubscribed for media passes, according to Sky Sports. French sports daily L’Equipe, however, believe that Beckham will make his debut against Marseille the following week.
