David Beckham: Will captain PSG tonight

Retiring midfielder David Beckham will captain Paris St Germain as the capital club celebrate their Ligue 1 title triumph against Brest tonight.

Beckham announced his retirement in midweek with coach Carlo Ancelotti confirming he would play in tonight's final match at the Parc des Princes this season.

A statement from PSG on the eve of tonight's game, however, also confirmed the 38-year-old former England captain would lead out the team in what could be his final match of a decorated career.

"David Beckham will wear the captain's armband tonight during his last match at the Parc des Princes," the statement read.

"A tribute will be paid to British midfielder who announced this week he would take his retirement at the end of this season."

PSG clinched their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years following a 1-0 win at Lyon last weekend.

It meant Beckham, who joined PSG in the winter on a short-term deal, has won league titles in four different countries - England, Spain, the United States and France.

PSG will wrap up their season away to Lorient next weekend, although Ancelotti has refused to confirm whether Beckham will play in that match.
