MANILA, Philippines – David Beckham broke down in tears in his last home appearance for Paris Saint Germain before he retires from soccer at the end of the season.

The former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder was overcome with emotion as he was substituted by Ezequiel Lavezzi in the 81st minute.

Beckham, who captained the team in his final match at Parc des Princes, set up Blaise Matuidi for one of the team’s goals.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic took his Ligue 1 goal tally for the season to 29 to inspire champions PSG to a 3-1 home win over Brest.

Last weekend, PSG clinched its first French League title since 1994. -- ANC, May 19, 2013
