Wenger: Beckham to PSG shows just how good Arsenal training is!

The Frenchman has joked that the 37 year-old's move to Ligue 1's big spenders was helped by the north Londoners after the former Manchester United man spent time with the Gunners

Arsene Wenger has joked that David Beckham's deadline day move to Paris Saint-Germain is testament to how good Arsenal training sessions are.

The former England captain was training with the Gunners to keep himself match fit ahead of his completed move to PSG on Thursday and Wenger joked about Arsenal's stature saying: "It just shows how effective our training is! He trained here once and is bought by PSG!"

The Frenchman had earlier ruled out a move for the 37 year-old insisting there was 'no speculation' linking him with a move to the London club.

Beckham revealed he had turned down offers to come back to the Premier League as a direct result of his loyalty to Manchester United whom he left in 2003.

"I've been successful with Manchester United and have always said I would never want to play for another English club," he said.

"I've a lot of history with Manchester United. They were the team I supported and dreamed of playing for. I couldn't do it."

The former LA Galaxy midfielder has signed a five-month contract with the Ligue 1 club and will donate all of his £150,000 wages to a children's charity located in Paris.

The move will also see him joining up with coach Carlo Ancelotti whom Beckham played under during his loan spell with AC Milan.
