French Ligue 1 News‘It was an honor and a source of pride’ joining PSG, Mauro Icardi

Paris Saint-Germain forward Mauro Icardi has reflected on his journey at the Capital club and how he feels.


Icardi had an impressive loan spell in the 2019/20 season before PSG decided to activate the buy option. Icardi feels honored to be in the Capital club.

“When I arrived on loan, I did all I could to be able to make a difference and help the team with my goals. It was a good year. So I was very happy the club decided to take up the option on me and to propose to me to continue together for the next four years.

“For me, it was an honor and a source of pride, as I said on the first day I arrived in Paris. I feel good here, in a great team that wins trophies. That’s what a player looks for,” Icardi reflects on signing for PSG.

Icardi reveals that his attitude hasn’t changed and hopes to continue improving and win trophies in the coming years. He also pointed out the intense Ligue 1 competition and how his side is approaching it.

“It’s clear that every game is and will be difficult,” Icardi admits to the tough Ligue 1 competition.

“We know that we’re a strong team, a team with undisputed technical qualities, but motivation always has to be at 100% in order to win. It’s a great challenge to have strong teams who are battling with us for the title.

“We’re in it and we’ll battle with those teams until the last minute.  We are focussing on ourselves, we know that winning matches will enable us to keep going like last year,” he continued.

“The best preparation is to win each game. Mentally, physically, that’s what gives you the confidence to keep winning, winning and winning,” he concluded.

PSG tops Ligue 1 table on a goals difference after the victory at Lyonnais and Lille’s loss to Nimes. The Ligue 1 battle heats up when it resumes on 3rd April as PSG takes on second-place Lille.
