David Beckham, the former Galaxy star who is now playing in France, will not make his debut on Sunday for Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG Coach Carlo Ancelotti said the 37-year-old midfielder is not in game shape and likely will make his debut against French rival Marseille next week when the clubs play Feb. 24 in league play or Feb. 27 in a French Cup match.
“I think he can play easily against Marseille after one week more training, no problem,” Ancelotti said. “I will make the decision whether he starts or not.
“He will stay here and work. He will stay here and improve his physical condition. He still needs to work, and with a week's work he will be ready the following week against Marseille.”
