    David Beckham may make PSG squad for Marseille clash: Carlo Ancelotti

    Beckham is likely to feature in the PSG squad for the first time when the Ligue 1 leaders take on arch rivals Olympique Marseille.

    Paris: David Beckham is likely to feature in the Paris St Germain squad for the first time when the Ligue 1 leaders take on arch rivals Olympique Marseille on February 24, coach Carlo Ancelotti said on Monday.

    Former England captain Beckham joined as a free agent last month but has to improve his fitness before he can challenge for a place in the squad.

    Asked when Beckham would be fit to be called up, Ancelotti told French sports daily L'Equipe: "Against Marseille I think. We will see in the coming days but maybe he will be a bit on the short side for the Sochaux game (this weekend)."

    PSG, who lead second-placed Olympique Lyon by six points, travel to Valencia on Tuesday for the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.
