Diego, you've just signed a three-year deal with PSG, how does it feel?
"I'm over the moon to have signed here in Paris, I'm delighted and this marks a new chapter in my career, signing, as I have, for such an ambitious club. PSG is France's most emblematic club and my aim here is to be as successful as possible."
Out on the pitch, what sort of player are you?
"I'm a central defender, I try to be strong and calm and consistent and make minimal errors. I also try to be decisive in both penalty boxes, defending and also attacking."
PSG is a great new challenge… How are you approaching it?
"In every club I've played, I've been lucky enough, one way or another, to have left a little mark and I'm a little bit proud of that. In changing club, I'm starting from zero again, it's another fresh challenge. Paris is a club looking to win titles, starting with the Ligue 1 championship. It's a great challenge, without forgetting that we also have a squad capable of achieving something in the Europa League. In my career, I've never been in a side that's really competitive in all competitions, domestically and in European competition."
A number of big clubs were interested in your signature. Why did you choose PSG?
"Throughout my career I've been lucky to have always interested plenty of clubs. I'm proud of that because it means I've always maintained a certain standard in my play. PSG's sporting project tipped the scales, both on and off the pitch. France is a beautiful country and I can't wait to live here."
Are you physically in good enough form to play in PSG's next game?
"After the Copa America, I had about three weeks off. I started training again on August 15 so I've already got a couple of weeks training under my belt. I'll be playing my first game of the season now with Uruguay and I should be ready to play for Paris when I return."
