PSG signing Beckham branded "third-hand Rolls Royce"

PSG signing David Beckham has been branded a "third-hand Rolls Royce" in the French press.

All of his £3million plus wages will go to a children's charity in the French capital, but many wondered what effect this would have on his team-mates.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star will still be receiving a multi-million pound share of all merchandise connected with his brand.

The club is also paying Beckham's accommodation and security during his time in the French capital - a figure which will be well into the high six figures.

"A special status can feed jealousy," reads Le Figaro, which adds: "In a dressing room where the offensive egos of players are struggling to live, the arrival of a third-hand Rolls Royce which becomes the main focus of media fascination risks causing envy, while feeding a climate of discord."
