Ancelotti rules out Beckham swoop

Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti has denied speculation linking his club with the signature of David Beckham.

Former England international Beckham revealed on Monday he will play his final game for LA Galaxy on December 1 in the MLS Cup Final against Houston Dynamo, paving the way for links with big-spending Ligue 1 outfit PSG.

However, former AC Milan and Chelsea coach Ancelotti told reporters he has no plans to sign the 37-year-old, stating: “We did not offer, good luck to him.”

Bekham made his name at Manchester United where he enjoyed a rich spell of success before moving to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

He later moved to MLS side LA Galaxy and also spent loan stints with Serie A giants AC Milan.

PSG have slumped to two recent domestic defeats but the 53-year-old Ancelotti is hoping they can bounce back by reaching the last-16 in the Champions League.

Ancelotti’s men play at Dynamo Kiev in their Group A clash on Wednesday.

“We’re going through a difficult period after two home losses. The players know that I’m not happy,” Ancelotti said.

“The important thing is to get our heads up as soon as possible and tomorrow we have the opportunity to qualify for the last 16, which would be a very good thing.

“A point would be enough for us to get to the last 16, but we’re going to play to win.”

Ancelotti also revealed he is set to tinker with the side’s tactics and is expecting his players to put in an improved performance in the Ukrainian capital.

He added: “Certain things will change, particularly in the tactics department. The players have to take their responsibility and I have confidence in them.

“We have done good things not that long ago, and there’s no reason why that won’t continue.”

“I speak to my players regularly, and I’m expecting a reaction against Kiev. I think that we will have a good match. Everyone has to take their responsibilities. I will take mine and the players have to do the same.”
