PSG open to off-field role for Becks

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has urged David Beckham to stay at the club even if the former England captain decides to hang up his boots at the end of the season.

Beckham, 38, signed a five-month deal when he moved to the French capital during the January transfer window.

French media reports last weekend suggested the ex-Manchester United, Real Madrid and Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder will retire when his contract expires in June, and claimed an ambassadorial role for Qatar ahead of the 2022 World Cup awaited him.

Al-Khelaifi, 39, however, hopes to keep Beckham at the Parc des Princes in whichever capacity the freshly-crowned Ligue 1 champion chooses.

"We'll see what David wants to do," the PSG boss told L'Equipe. "We'd like him to continue with us. He's a man of great quality.

"If he decided not to continue his playing career, I hope he'll stay at the club in another role. To have him among us, on the pitch or off it, is very important. It's up to him."
