Marco Asensio explains move from Real Madrid to PSG

Marco Asensio has discussed his move from Real Madrid to PSG in an interview with RMC Sport that was transcribed by AS.

Why PSG?

“Above all for the project and the ambition. I’m at a moment in my career that is really very good. I had to make a decision, and I wanted to take a step forward. I think this club is the perfect club to do all that and win trophies.”

Speaking to Benzema, Camavinga and Tchouaméni about Ligue 1

“Yes. I asked them. And they made some jokes in French so I could learn a couple of things in French. For Ligue 1, I know it’s a very physical league. There are also very technical players. As a club, PSG is a big club, one of the biggest in Europe, and that’s why we want to win everything.”

Relationship with Luis Enrique

“We were together at the World Cup. We’ve known each other for a long time and it’s a very good relationship. We hope to be good, and develop great things here.”
