PHOTOS: David Beckham Tearful Farewell In Paris…
The 38-year-old former England captain leaves the field in tears after helping his team to victory in Paris.
A tearful David Beckham has received a standing ovation as he left the pitch in what appeared to be his final game as a professional footballer.
The retiring midfielder captained Paris St Germain in the team’s 3-1 victory over Brest in Paris.
As he walked off the field in tears, Beckham embraced his teammates and thousands of fans rose to their feet to cheer.
The 38-year-old announced his retirement this week, with coach Carlo Ancelotti confirming he would play in the club’s final match at the Parc des Princes this season.
A statement from PSG on the eve of the game confirmed the former England captain would also lead the team on to the field.
“David Beckham will wear the captain’s armband tonight during his last match at the Parc des Princes,” the statement read.
“A tribute will be paid to British midfielder who announced this week he would take his retirement at the end of this season.”
PSG clinched their first Ligue 1 title in 19 years following a 1-0 win at Lyon last weekend.
It meant Beckham, who joined PSG in the winter on a short-term deal, has won league titles in four different countries – England, Spain, the US and France.
PSG will wrap up their season away to Lorient next weekend, although Ancelotti has refused to confirm whether Beckham will play in that match.
