And when it came time to leave the pitch, chants of "Dav-eed Beckham" broke out among the stadium.

As PSG already having clinched the French league title, it is unclear whether he would play in the last game of the season away in Lorient on May 26.
The 38-year-old former England captain announced his retirement on Thursday.

Beckham earned 115 caps for England, a record for an outfield player, and won the Champions League, six Premier League titles and two FA Cups with Manchester United.

He also won league titles with Real Madrid in Spain, LA Galaxy in the United States and PSG in France.
