Les Parisiens fell to a shock defeat on Saturday, but veteran Englishman has dispelled the notion that they showed a lack of respect to their less-decorated opponents.David Beckham has insisted that Paris Saint-Germain does not see itself as superior to other sides following the club's shock 1-0 Ligue 1 loss to Stade de Reims.
A goal from Grzegorz Krychowiak in the 64th minute consigned the French table-toppers to a fifth defeat of the campaign, even with having a man advantage for the final 30 minutes, but Beckham does not believe that arrogance was to blame for Saturday's adverse result.
"We had two good games against [Olympique de] Marseille, but in football things change very quickly," Beckham told reporters after the match, in which he entered as a 64th-minute substitute. "We never think that we're superior to any team. It's always difficult coming to away grounds. I think they played very well but we can play better.
"They won the game, so they must have done something better than us, but like I said, we move on."
Olympique Lyonnais can now move level on points with PSG in the league standings if it is able to beat Brest on Sunday. PSG would remain in first place based on goal differential, as it currently holds an 11-goal edge over Lyon.
