Blaise Matuidi is convinced new signing David Beckham will help Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain "fulfil our objectives".
The former England captain has signed a five-month deal with the French powerhouses and made his debut off the bench against Marseille last weekend.
The 37-year-old made his first start against the same opposition in midweek and fellow midfielder Matuidi said his arrival had the capital club buzzing.
"He's proved he's not only a great man, but also a great player. I think he'll bring a lot to the team and I hope he'll help us fulfil our objectives," he told the Ligue 1 website.
"He's a source of inspiration, and when you see the work he put in against Marseille, well it proves that you can still do it at 37.
"When I sit back it's crazy to think I'm playing with him and it's an honour which I want to make the most of."
