David Beckham was thrilled with his full debut with Paris Saint-Germain, as he played 85 minutes against Marseille. The Capital city side knocked out Olympique de Marseille with a 2-0 win from the French Cup and qualified for the quarter-finals.
"It's always good to start a match," he told RMC. "It was a pleasure. I feel at home, I'm playing with super players in a super team. I felt good, but I cannot always play 85 minutes immediately."
Beckham was harshly booked shortly before being substituted out of the match after a confrontation with Jordan Ayew, but he insists such incidents are par for the course in big games.
"The coming together with Jordan Ayew? This happens in big matches like this. The tension is high. I'm not complaining," he said.
Sporting director Leonardo praised the Englishman and said he did not come to PSG for commercial reasons.
"He did not arrive just so we could take pictures, press conferences and sell jerseys. Today was the confirmation of that," he said.
Coach Carlo Ancelotti was also satisfied with Beckham's full debut, but also indicated he is frustrated with UEFA's two match ban on Zlatan Ibrahimovic following his red card against Valencia.
"It was a different game to last Sunday. Marseille used different tactics. They played deeper to prevent us from playing. In fact, it was easier for us to keep the ball.
"Ibrahimovic's Champions League suspension? I was surprised when he got the red card. To see Uefa impose a two game ban is incredible. I hope they will reconsider their decision."
