David Beckham will not make his debut for Paris Saint-Germain against Sochaux in the French league on Sunday.

PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti said Saturday that Beckham "will stay here" when asked if the 37-year-old former England captain will play in the away game. Beckham is more likely to play at home against title rival Marseille on Feb. 24. PSG hosts Marseille again three days later in the French Cup.

Beckham is looking to win the league championship in a fourth country. He started full training with PSG this week and has not played since his last appearance for the Los Angeles Galaxy on Dec. 1. He worked out alone last week in London with personal fitness trainers.

Entering this weekend, PSG leads Lyon by six points and Marseille by eight.
