David Beckham: Former England captain trains with PSG

When asked if Beckham would travel with the squad Ancelotti said "No, he'll be staying here to work.

"He needs more training but he'll be ready next week for the game at home to Marseille (on Sunday). Not necessarily to start, but to play."

Ancelotti thinks Beckham has a lot to offer and added: "He can bring his experience, his quality, his professionalism, these are things that we need."

Beckham, who is looking to win a league title in a fourth different country, started full training with PSG this week but has not played since his last appearance for the Los Angeles Galaxy on 1 December.

He trained in London last week along with some personal fitness trainers.

PSG lead Lyon by six points at the top of the Ligue 1 table, with Marseille eight points back in third, ahead of this weekend's matches.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
