Ancelotti: Beckham must wait for PSG debut

.

David Beckham will have to wait a little longer to make his Paris Saint-Germain debut, despite completing his first full training session with the club.

Some sections of the media have labelled Beckham's move to the Ligue 1 outfit as nothing more than a publicity stunt, but Beckham is keen to play regular first-team football and wants to let his actions on the pitch define his time in France.

PSG coach, Carlo Ancelotti, was happy with Beckham's participation in what was his first training session with Les Parisiens, but admits that the 37-year-old global superstar is not yet ready to make his first-team bow.

"He needs two weeks of preparation," Ancelotti said.

"He could be ready for the match against Sochaux (February 17), or maybe the next match."

The game Beckham is most likely to play in is PSG's clash with Marseille, where he could face on-loan QPR midfielder Joey Barton, who would no doubt relish lining up against the former England captain.
