Sir Alex Ferguson was taken aback by David Beckham's decision to join Paris St Germain for the remainder of the season.

The former Manchester United and England midfielder had been training with Arsenal after leaving LA Galaxy in November but opted to join the rich French outfit in the most eye-catching deadline day deal. Ferguson was not surprised at Beckham spurning offers to return to the Premier League, however, the Scot did not expect him to turn up in the French capital.

"I was surprised. I didn't see that," Ferguson told MUTV. "I didn't think he would join an English club. He always said he wouldn't after his career with United and he was true to his word. But I don't think anyone saw PSG coming."
