Paris Saint-Germain defender David Luiz claims he would have been as happy had he joined Barcelona instead of the French champions.
The defender believes he will enjoy his football far more in Paris than he would had he moved to Spain or Germany and says the whole club is set on winning the Champions League
The Brazil international moved to Parc des Prince from Chelsea this summer as the Spanish giants began pursuing a number of high-profile defensive targets.
While a potential move to Camp Nou never materialised, with Barca focusing their efforts on the signing of Luis Suarez before later turning to centre-backs Jeremy Mathieu and Thomas Vermaelen, the 27-year-old claims he will enjoy his football far more in Paris than he would in Catalunya or in Germany.
“I’m sure I’ll be happier here in Paris than if I had moved to Barcelona or Munich,” Luiz told Telefoot.
“I really believe PSG is the club of the future, that’s why I’m happy to be here and I think I’ll stay here for many years.”
Luiz admitted he was persuaded to join PSG after talks with coach Laurent Blanc and Brazil team-mate Thiago Silva, and claims the whole club is fully focused on winning the Champions League.
“I talked a lot with Thiago Silva and the coach, Laurent Blanc,” said the former Benfica man. “My decision was easy. PSG were made for me.
“The great objective is the Champions League. It’s the dream here.”
STATEMENT: Ghana Online Writers Association Suspends Publications On Sarkodie – Until Further Notice
Following lobbying efforts by the GhanaOnline Arts Writers Association (GOAWA) against indiscipline in the industry, especially towards the media, GOAWA announces the publication of stories from the camp of BET award winner and Duncwills Entertainment rapper, Sarkodie – until further notice.
The decision is precipitated by the rapper’s recent expression of ungratefulness towards the media and the passage of some comments which we deem as an insult to our profession and us as practitioners.
Efforts are being coordinated with similar Associations/Movements with the common goal of opposing the act of indiscipline in the music industry in Ghana. This is not to claim that the media is untouchable or is a ‘saintly’ institution – we also do get it wrong sometimes and thus welcome constructive criticisms.
However, Sarkodie’s comments in his song titled ‘Free Press’ smacks of gross ungratefulness. In our efforts to put Ghana on the world map in terms of art and culture through our writings online, we also need to make sure we help shape and keep a well disciplined and focused arts industry.
