Matuidi honoured to play with Beckham

PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi believes David Beckham has a lot to offer the capital club.

PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi believes David Beckham has a lot to offer the capital club.

The veteran Englishman joined PSG on a five-month deal in January after leaving LA Galaxy on a free transfer, and Matuidi feels Beckham is a source of inspiration for his new team-mates.

“He’s proved he’s not only a great man, but also a great player. I think he’ll bring a lot to the team and I hope he’ll help us fulfil our objectives,” Matuidi told the Ligue 1 website.

“He’s a source of inspiration, and when you see the work he put in against Marseille, well it proves that you can still do it at 37.

“When I sit back it’s crazy to think I’m playing with him and it’s an honour which I want to make the most of.”

Matuidi also discussed Paris Saint-Germain’s chances of winning the domestic double.

“We have the means to achieve it,” he said.

“If we get through the Coupe de France quarter-finals against Evian then it will be open to us. In the league it is us holding the cards and if we don’t slip up then we’ll become champions.

“I started to believe Lyon would keep challenging us at the winter break when I saw they were still level with us despite our magnificent December. They have a deeper squad than Marseille so it’s normal they’re in second.”

PSG hold a three-point lead over Lyon and visit Reims on Saturday.
