How Good Was David Beckham, Really?

Paris Saint-Germain

Years: 2013
Strengths: Experience
Weaknesses: Age, lack of productivity
Highlights

Beckham's final club stop was this past season in Paris, where he inked a five month contract to play alongside star Zlatan Ibrahimovic at PSG. He started just one game and appeared as a substitute in eight matches, failing to score a goal and tallying just one assist. The team, however, still performed well, winning the Ligue 1 title and giving Beckham his fourth championship in a different league. Given how little Beckham was able to break through as a regular with PSG's first 11, it seemed pretty clear that his run as a top-level European footballer was through. In that context, and given that he (hopefully) has more money than he'll ever need, it makes sense that he decided that this would be his final season.
