Coach Carlo Ancelotti says David Beckham could make his Paris Saint-Germain debut at Sochaux next weekend.

Beckham joined the club amid a whirl of flashbulbs last week in an unexpected move, signing a five-month deal until the end of the season. The 37-year-old former England captain has been training in London this week and is set to start training with PSG next week, Ancelotti says.

Beckham has not played since his last appearance for the Los Angeles Galaxy on Dec. 1 and is working his way back to fitness.

Ancelotti thinks ''he could be available against Sochaux or the week after'' adding that ''it's possible that he plays at Sochaux'' on Feb. 17.

He could make his home debut the following Sunday against French title rival Marseille.
