Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti says that David Beckham may make his first appearance for the French giant sooner than expected. After training this week with PSG staff at the National Tennis Center in London, Ancelotti said the former LA Galaxy midfielder could make his debut in the Feb 17 trip to Sochaux.

"He's worked really well,” Ancelotti told reporters ahead of PSG’s home game against Bastia on Friday. “Next week, when we get back from Valencia, he'll be with us. He needs two weeks' work. Perhaps he'll be available for the Sochaux game or the week after. There's no particular problem, just improving his physical condition."

Beckham, who will travel to Spain to watch PSG’s UEFA Champions League Round of 16 first-leg game against Valencia on Tuesday, told PSG TV: "It's going really well. I feel much better than I did two weeks ago. We're working hard and I like that ... I'm impatient to meet my new teammates and discover the Parc des Princes. There are some great players in the team, and I'm really looking forward to training with them and working hard for the club. I hope to be able to help them win something soon."
