PSG No2 Clement: Beckham knows we want him to stay

Paris St Germain assistant coach Paul Clement has hailed the impact made by David Beckham.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star signed for PSG in January.

"Everyone was excited when they knew he was coming because he had a fantastic rep as a pro and a man and great quality on the field still," Clement said in an interview with beIN Sport.

"He's been a breath of fresh air here. He gets on with everyone, first out to training, last one back in, real enthusiasm for the game.

"You know after 20 years of playing at the top level, he still loves his football and hopefully he'll be able to continue for a little bit longer."

Former Chelsea assistant Clement is optimistic the ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder will remain with the French giants past the end of the season.

"The club have made it clear that they'd like him to stay on. But he's made it clear that's he's going to have a think about it at the end of the season, talk to his family, see how his body feels. If he feels fresh I'm sure he'll continue," Clement added.
