Mamadou, after the pre-season training camps in Austria and the United States, PSG are back in training at the Camp des Loges this week... How has it been?
"Everything's great! We've had two ten-day training camps that went really well. We've got new players who have been through their initiation... There really is a great atmosphere within the squad. But the most important thing is that we've been working really well. The return to Paris has gone very smoothly. It's nice to be back at our home training ground."
Paris take on FC Barcelona on Saturday in a gala friendly match...
"This is the type of game that everyone dreams about. We're at home, hosting Barca, the best team in the world! What more can you say? To play against those players, those artists who are the best of the best... it will be a great chance for us to measure ourselves as a team. On a personal level, to play against those forwards can only make you a better player."
How are you approaching the new season?
"This season, I have big ambitions. Very big! We want to win the Ligue 1 title and the Champions League is also very, very important for us this season. It won't be easy, but we are building a team here. Above all, everyone has that burning desire to succeed. That's important. To hear the Champions League music at the Parc des Princes, that will be something incredible for me, a dream come true."
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the most recent signing at the club. How is he settling in?
"Really well. Many people have a few ideas about what they think he's like, but, honestly, he's just a really nice, down to earth guy, very humble, but he has won everything and is still hungry for more. I think he will be an enormous addition to the squad because he has that winning mentality. I can really understand today, who he has been so successful everywhere he has played."
