Meunier: I Couldn’t Say No To PSG

share on:

After starring in his debut for PSG, Thomas Meunier says the Ligue 1 club is one a player cannot reject.

The defender came off the bench to score in the ICC friendly. Meunier scored a brace in the 3-1 win over Real Madrid.

The right-back is a new arrival in Paris, having signed from Belgian outfit Club Brugge where he made over 150 league appearances, but said he was already seeing the differences between his former employers and PSG.

“There’s a big difference between Paris Saint-Germain and my previous club Bruges. This is a discovery, it’s like a new world here and that shows even on this tour in the US,” Meunier said.

“The professionalism and organisation here are extreme and this is such a great discovery.

“When a club like Paris knocks on your door, you don’t hesitate for long.

“You can ask a few questions of yourself but life is about choices and you can’t have any regrets. I’m so happy to join one of the top five teams in Europe.

“I couldn’t refuse, you don’t turn down a club like Paris Saint-Germain.”

And while he might be new to the club, Meunier said he expects to play a big role under coach Unai Emery, adding he possesses the necessary qualities to slot right into his game plan.

“The coach counts a lot on his full-backs. My physical qualities mean I can run a lot and I’m just as technically able in front of goal as I am in defence, as I used to be a forward,” the 24-year-old said.

“I think I can bring a lot to this team, especially going forward.”
