David Beckham has been named Paris Saint-Germain's captain for Saturday's French League game, his final home match before retiring.

PSG clinched the league title last weekend, making Beckham the first English player to win the championship in four countries after title success with Manchester United, Real Madrid and the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Beckham was given a rousing reception at Parc des Princes before the game with Brest. Fans broke into chants of "Merci, David" when his name was read over the stadium speaker.

The 38-year-old former England captain announced Thursday he is retiring at the end of the season. He has yet to say if he will play in PSG's last game, at Lorient on May 26.
