Ibrahimovic: Beckham is the player Paris Saint-Germain need

Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes that former England captain David Beckham is just the player Paris Saint-Germain need as they aim to win Ligue 1 and go far in the Champions League.

The veteran midfielder inked a five-month deal with PSG on deadline day of the winter transfer window, and Ibrahimovic is confident that the 37-year-old will prove to be a success at his new club.

"I believe that signing him was a good thing because apart from his experience, he has a lot of other qualities," the Sweden star told RMC.

"He adds something in the mental aspect of the game as he's very strong mentally. He is a real winner and that's exactly what we need. He will help us a lot."

Meanwhile, sporting director Leonardo has high expectations of the former LA Galaxy, Real Madrid and Manchester United man.

He added: "Beckham is a role model. He's a player who has enjoyed success at the highest level and has an impressive resume.

"I think that he will prove to be a big surprise at PSG. He has always played at a high level over the past six years. He is not here for the media exposure, but to win titles."

Les Parisiens currently sit atop of the Ligue 1 table with 48 points from 23 games.
