Former England captain David Beckham makes historical debut for Paris St-Germain
David Beckham made his bow for Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday night, helping his new club to a 2-0 victory over Marseille.
The former England captain came on as a second-half sub at the Parc des Princes, also becoming the 400th player to debut for PSG in their history.
And Beckham admitted it was a 'perfect day' for him as goals from Lucas Moura and Zlatan Ibrahimovich were enough to see off their arch rivals, who also had England-capped Joey Barton in their side.
Beckham said: "I'm very happy tonight, mainly because of the victory.
"We have played better but it was very important to win.
"Today was the perfect day. Not only because I'm the 400th player in the history of the club but also because I'm part of a very special team.
"The welcome from the supporters was unbelievable, and I want to say thank you to them."
The 37-year-old joined PSG in January on a five month deal and has been working on his fitness since then, before boss Carlo Ancelotti felt he was prepared for Ligue 1 action.
Ancelotti's team are currently top of the table and with Marseille one of the teams in their pursuit, Sunday's victory was a valuable one.
And the former Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan and LA Galaxy man could be back in action this week, as PSG meet Marseille again, this time in the cup.
Ancellotti revealed: "Beckham played because he was in the right physical condition and certain players needed a breather.
"It could be that David Beckham will play on Wednesday in the Coupe de France."
