Beckham to donate PSG salary to charity

David Beckham has joined French Ligue 1 side Paris St Germain. The 37-year-old former England skipper has signed a five-month deal and announced he would be donating his salary to charity.

"I'm excited, it's something we've been working on and talking about for quite a while," he said.

"I've a lot of experience. I've won trophies throughout my career and played with the biggest and best clubs."

The former Manchester United midfielder added: "One of the reasons I wanted to come to Paris was we decided on something quite unique throughout my time here.

"I won't receive any salary. My salary will go to a local children's charity. That's one of the things we are excited and proud to do. It's something exciting and I'm not sure it's been done before."
