Eric Cantona, the former Manchester United great, has branded his former teammate David Beckham as a winner.

Both famous for wearing the number 7 shirt at Old Trafford, the legendary United duo enjoyed a great on-field partnership for Sir Alex Ferguson's Red Army, spending five glorious years on the same team.

This season, PSG have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League as well as the French Cup, whilst Carlo Ancelotti’s side are also leading the Ligue 1 table and are pursuing an unlikely treble.

Cantona believes the experience of the Englishman can bring a lot of value to the French outfit as they compete for major honours.

"Big players who have a lot of experience always bring something with them.

"Beckham might not be able to play in all the games but his experience will be useful."

Cantona believes Beckham's experience will prove invaluable, as the former England captain looks to play a key role in aiding his side to victory on numerous platforms.

He added: "He’s aware that he’s got a natural responsibility, he’s a winner who is capable of getting a message across."

Beckham's PSG contract runs until the end of the season, but he's hoping to earn a new one-year deal under Carlo Ancelotti.

The 37-year-old was not used by the manager in their clash against Valencia but will likely be involved in the side’s clash against Nancy on Saturday.

Beckham has one Champions League trophy to his name, which he won in 1999 with Manchester United. He has also won 13 major domestic championships during his time with United, Real Madrid and MLS giants LA Galaxy.
