Messi Says Dream to lead PSG to Champions League Glory

Lionel Messi said on Wednesday that he is happy to have signed for French club Paris Saint Germain (PSG). He further added that he was ready to lead the club to their first-ever Champions League title.

“That’s why I am here. It’s an ambitious club,” Messi told a news conference. “You can see they’re ready to fight for everything.

“My dream is to win another Champions League, and I think this is the ideal place to be to do that.”

Messi admitted that he did not know when he will be playing his first match for PSG, as he has not played since winning the Copa America with his country last month.

“I’m coming back from holiday, I’ve been a month off the pitch,” he said.

“I need a bit of a pre-season and get myself going. Hopefully debuting can be soon but I can’t give you a date. It’s up to the coaches.”

Messi on Sunday cried at the press conference when he told his fans that he was leaving his childhood club. And now he said that he is looking forward to a new challenge.

“I’ll always be thankful to Barca and their fans. I went there as a boy, and we had some good and bad times,” he said.

“The Barca fans knew I’d join a good club, fighting for the Champions League, because they know me, I like to win, I’m a winner and I want to carry on doing that.

“I don’t doubt that PSG’s objective is to win and grow. It would be nice on the one hand to face them in the Champions League, especially with fans, but on the other strange to go back to my home in another team’s shirt – but that’s football.”
