Javier, was does this French Clasico for you?
"It's a huge match for the whole team and for everyone here in Paris. We are obviously hoping for the three points to make our fans as happy as possible. This match means a lot to us and we will be giving our absolute maximum."

Paris Saint-Germain are under a little pressure coming into the game after last Sunday's 3-2 loss to Sochaux?
"No, I don't think so. We are all professionals, we're currently on a good run and sitting top of the standings. Of course there was that loss to Sochaux, but we were unbeaten in the previous 13. We are aiming to get straight back to winning ways."

In terms of excitement, we know that preparing for PSG vs OM is always a little bit different...
"Motivation is always incredible in this type of game. We know how much this game means to the supporters. That motivates us even more, obviously. Looking beyond this match, we are coming into a part of the season where we need to produce some big performances. We will play twice against OM, then there's the Champions League match at home to Valencia. It's up to us to do what we have to do."

You appear more comfortable in the current tactical set-up... How are you feeling things are going?
"Every player experiences ups and downs... it's normal. At the moment, I'm feeling very good physically and mentally, I'm comfortable with my position on the pitch and I will keep working hard to get better and better."

A final word on your new teammate, a certain David Beckham?
"He is a great player and a great person. He has shined everywhere he has played. He has a vast experience and I will learn a lot from him, both on and off the pitch. It's very positive to working with him. He helps us all raise our games because he is a world class star."
