Alessandro Florenzi reflected on his first six months in Paris after he completed a transfer to the French giants from Roma in the summer.
The Italian made a switch to the Ligue 1 side on loan with an option to buy after he returned to the Giallorossi from his loan spell at Valencia. Florenzi has made 21 appearances for the club with two goals to his name and has cemented his place as the first choice right back.
“I feel very good. In all honesty, the guys gave me a fantastic welcome. In a very short time, I really settled very well into the group,” he explained to PSG’s official website.
“I also knew some of the others before and that was obviously a big help too. Leandro Paredes played with me at Roma and obviously that people speak Italian helped me settle in, but I also speak Spanish after my time in Valencia and that also helped.”
He continued, “Obviously it’s a special time. I joined a new league that I didn’t know and it surprised me from every point of view. Obviously learning French isn’t easy, but I am trying to learn because I want to feel even more at home here in Paris.”
Florenzi then commented on winning his first trophy as a professional after PSG’s recent victory in the French Super Cup.
“Honestly, it was a nice feeling. I didn’t expect such a celebration from my teammates and it was very touching. Now, having won my first trophy, I don’t want to stop here, I want to keep winning and win as many trophies as possible. ”
“We want to keep playing for silverware. Winning is never easy. Everyone plays at 110% against Paris Saint-Germain and we have to give our best, each and every time to defend our shirt.”
It’s widely believe that PSG director, Leonardo, will exercise the club’s option to make Florenzi’s move to Paris permanent once the season is completed in the coming months.
