Ángel Di María has insisted that he signed a contract extension at Paris Saint-Germain as a result of he believes the membership have what it takes to win the Champions League.
The Argentine winger penned an extension final yr which is able to see him stay within the French capital till no less than 2021.
PSG’s astonishing defeat to Manchester United saw them crash out of Europe at the last 16 stage again – and that defeat has seen some question whether the club can keep hold their best players.
Di María though, has claimed that he will stay on and help PSG claim Europe’s top club prize.
“I signed a contract extension because I wanted to be here, because I want to win the Champions’ League here,” he told Canal.
“That was my objective when I came here. This year I was free, I could have gone to any club that I wanted, I had other offers, I could have joined some very big clubs. But very soon we will achieve this objective.
“UCL exit? It is very simple. We were a different team that night. We put in an exceptional performance in the 1st leg, we pressed, we showed intensity, we had a fantastic character.
“And we didn’t give Manchester United a chance, not a chance… I think it was the stress and this thing in the back of our minds that the club had been trying to get through to the quarter-finals but had not succeeded.
“The reason that I am still in Europe and not in Argentina is because I want to win the Champions’ League.
“I did the “Decima” with Real Madrid, over several years, and it was an incredible source of satisfaction. I think to win it here for the first time would be unforgettable for me.”
