The PSG midfielder faced a press backlash following his performance in the Champions League quarter-final first leg but is he still capable of performing at the top?POLL
Paris Saint-Germain midfielder David Beckham could feature in his side's crucial Champions League quarter-final second leg against Barcelona on Wednesday night, but is he still capable of performing at the highest level?
After initial concerns that the 37-year-old was short of match fitness, Beckham finally made his PSG debut as he came on as a second-half substitute in a 2-0 win over Marseille on February 24.
The former England captain made his first start for the club in a 2-2 draw with Saint-Etienne on March 17, before Ancelotti raised eyebrows with the decision to include him in the starting XI to face Barcelona in first leg of the Champions League tie at the beginning of April.
Beckham was roundly criticised by the French press for his performance in the 2-2 draw at Parc des Princes, with negative headlines questioning his physical condition and apparent inability to perform his defensive duties.
Marco Verratti was swiftly reinstated to the starting XI in place of Beckham for PSG's next fixture, a 2-0 win over Rennes on Saturday, although Ancelotti has already hinted that he could put faith in the Englishman for the second leg at Camp Nou.
So ahead of Wednesday's crunch second-leg meeting in Spain, will Beckham get the nod to face Barca and is he still capable of turning in top-level performances against the very best?
