Lionel Messi said that he is in the right place to win another Champions League trophy and cited a reunion with Neymar as a key factor in his decision to sign with French heavy weight Paris Saint Germain.
The Argentina superstar spoke at his introductory news conference at the Parc des Princes Stadium on Wednesday, the morning after signing a two-year deal with the option for a third season.
My goal and dream is to raise another CL trophy and I believe that I am in the right place to achieve it,said Messi.
'When you see this squad, you really want to play with them. We have the same goal. And, Neymar of course did a lot and was important for my choice.' Qatari-backed PSG has been desperate to win the CL, falling just short when it lost the 2020 final to Bayern Munich. Messi helped Barcelona win four CL trophies during his stay there.
Messi’s arrival gives PSG formidable attacking options as he links up with not only Neymar — his former teammate at Barcelona — but also Kylian Mbappe.
