David Beckham is the footballer with the Midas Touch. Everything he touches turns to gold. Even footballs, hence the moniker of “Golden Balls”. This week, Beckham was inducted into the newly-created Paris Saint-Germain Hall of Fame despite only playing roughly six months for the club and winning the first of a streak of four Ligue 1 championships.
Also entering the vaunted Hall of Fame were more noteworthy regulars such as Ronaldinho, Pedro Pauleta and the club’s leading goal scorer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Here is the list.

Meanwhile, the son of George Weah, Timothy Weah, follows in his father’s footsteps by signing for Paris Saint-Germain in a three-year deal that will last until 2020. Weah’s national team efforts include a stint with the USA Under-17 Men’s National Team. If his form picks up, a call-up to the senior side in time for the next World Cup qualifying cycle could be in the offing. The USA Under-17s will be playing in the FIFA U-17 World Cup in India later this year. Prior to signing his professional contract with PSG, Weah was on showcase for the club’s youth team and showcased his talent against Ludogorets Razgrad in an 8-1 hammering in UEFA Youth Cup play.
“I’m very proud to continue my adventure with Paris Saint-Germain by signing this professional contract,” said Weah. “I’m with a great club and I can’t wait to continue making progress towards my goal of one day playing for the senior team.”
