Beckham thrilled with winning PSG debut: There were nerves

David Beckham was delighted with a winning debut for PSG in victory over Marseille.

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United star is looking to become the first Englishman to win four titles in four different countries.

He said: "Obviously it is a good start. It was nice to get out there as it seems to be quite a long time since I signed.

"It was good to make an impact. We had a tough 25 minutes and they had a few chances. We did not play as well as we can. The manager told me to go on and keep the ball and settle things down. Hopefully I did that.

"There were slight nerves. There was a bit of pressure. It has been tough getting up to speed as I took seven weeks off and did absolutely nothing. It was difficult to get back to fitness. But I felt good and the sharpness is coming back.

"It was good to play against the team who are in third place. It was a big game. It is the biggest game in France and a nice one to be part of.

"I could not feel my feet for the first two or three passes as they were frozen from being on the bench but I was happy with what I did. Now I will take it step by step. I knew I would never come here straight away and be in the starting XI.

"That will be like this for a while. As long as I can come on and make a difference, that is fine.

"I want to push for a place to start. I have always known coming here, after Christmas, at my age, that it would be tough to get a starting place."
