David Beckham has been inducted into PSG’s new hall of fame despite only ever making 10 appearances for the Ligue 1 side.
The Parisians revamped their official website this week, introducing a ‘Hall of Fame’ page for fans to get better acquainted with the club’s past luminaries.
All-time top goalscorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic is at the top of the shop, while there are also deserving nods for the likes of Ronaldinho, Pauleta, Jay-Jay Okocha, Rai, George Weah, Safet Susic and Dominique Rocheteau – all of whom made distinguished contributions to the club cause.
Slightly incongruous is the presence of Beckham, who made a grand total of two starts for PSG between January and June of 2013 before retiring at the age of 38…
In the accompanying bio, PSG claim that Beckham’s arrival at the Parc des Prince was the moment the club “changed worlds” and moved into the upper echelons.
For the record, the ex-Manchester United midfielder s joined on a five-month contract, didn’t register a single goal or assist but did manage to get sent-off once just six minutes after coming on as a substitute.
He did however pledge his entire salary to charity and sell more than his fair share of replica shirts.
Still, hardly the stuff of legends.
