Lionel Messi’s first words as a Paris-St Germain player: “First of all I want to thank the President for his words I’m very happy. You know my exit from Barcelona was a hard moment after so many years it was a difficult change after so much time. But the moment I arrived here I feel very happy and I want to begin training and I wanted it to be a quick signing. I’m enjoying my time in Paris since the first minute my family and I arrived – my only will now is to begin training and I want to work with the staff and team mates and begin this new moment of my life. I want to thank the president and the whole club for the way they received me since the press release – they were quick in their negotiations and it’s been quite easy. It was a tricky situation and they solved the problems – it was not easy and they did it well and quickly.
“I’m so happy to be here – I have a will to play and I still want to play and win as much as I wanted it at the first moment of my career. This club is ready to fight for all the trophies, this is my goal, to keep growing, keep winning titles and that’s why I’ve come here to this club. I hope we can make it happen.
“I want to thank Paris, it’s been crazy. I’m sure I’m going to enjoy my time with this team and we are going to fight for the aims of the club.”
