David Beckham Happy To Sell PSG Shirts (PICTURES)

David Beckham has admitted he doesn't mind being known as a shirt-seller at Paris St Germain.

Beckham joined the Ligue 1 leaders on transfer deadline day but said at his press conference unveiling his fee would go to a local children's charity.

However the 37-year-old's image is one of the most lucrative in world sport, and his acquisition could aid PSG in combatting Uefa's financial fair play rules.

Beckham conceded his brand was part of his profession when he spoke to Canal Plus on Thursday night.

"If I can help to sell lots of shirts, no problem," Beckham shrugged. "It's great to see so many people wearing my shirt.

"In most of the clubs where I've been, I heard the same thing, that I've come to sell shirts."

The former England captain has made two appearances for PSG, making his debut as a 76th-minute substitute in the league win against Marseille on Sunday in a 2-0 win.

He made his first start for the club on Wednesday night against the same opponents in the Coupe de France, as PSG won 2-0 again.
