Javier, you are starting your second season with Paris Saint-Germain. How do see the club's evolution in that time?
"Since I arrived, there have been a lot of changes at Paris Saint-Germain. The club is expanding rapidly and I'm proud to be a part of the project. We have an excellent squad, armed to achieve greatness, which means winning Ligue 1 and doing well in the Champions League. That's what I want, and they're also the ambitions of the club."
What are your personal objectives?
"Obviously I want us to win the championship but why not also, for example, the Coupe de France. At the same time, a reiterate, we want to play well in Europe. For me, this season will be my first experience of the Champions League, so I want to do as well as possible to impress in this special competition."
Like Paris Saint-Germain, more and more French clubs are signing South American players. What do you make of that?
There has always been a lot of South Americans playing football all over the world. In fact, I think now they are probably the most wanted players, given their skills and playing style. It's also true that recently, the French league is becoming more and more attractive to South Americans and more and more want to come and play here. I hope it continues because France is a very beautiful country, a great country to live in and has its own football culture and style."
Is an attractive Ligue 1 why you came to France?
"That's one of the reasons, yes. But the main reason I came to France was because Paris Saint-Germain is growing every day, is building for a glorious future, both on and off the pitch."
On the pitch, this weekend you travel to Ajaccio. How are you approaching this match in Corsica?
"This season, we are obliged to win every game. We didn't take our opportunities in the opening game, but the first match of the season is always difficult. We need to be calmer, more patient and confident in our play and travel to Ajaccio with the idea of fighting for the title from the start."
