David Beckham is slated to make his long-awaited debut for Paris Saint Germain in next weekend's home match against Marseille, coach Carlo Ancelotti indicated on Saturday.

David Beckham will make his Paris Saint Germain debut in next weekend's Ligue 1 headline clash against Marseille, coach Carlo Ancelotti said on Saturday.

The 37-year-old Beckham, who signed a five-month contract with the French leaders last month, will skip Sunday's trip to Sochaux as he needs more time to get his fitness levels up to scratch, the Italian explained.

"No, he'll be staying here to work, he needs more training, he'll be ready next week for the game at home to Marseille..not necessarily to start, but to play" Ancelotti said.

"It's up to me to decide if he starts the match or not."

The former Manchester United and LA Galaxy star has a lot to give his new club, Ancelotti added.

"He can bring his experience, his quality, his professionalism, these are things that we need."

Despite his veteran status, the Englishman's arrival in Paris has been met by a media frenzy and his movements have been tracked closely since he became the Paris club's main mid-season signing.

Some 150 journalists from ten countries attended his first run out on the PSG training ground last week.
