Lavezzi: I joined Paris Saint-Germain to win titles

The Argentina international says he is pleased to be part of the ambitious Ligue 1 side's project, and has set his sights on winning silverware
Ezequiel Lavezzi says he was tempted to join Paris Saint-Germain because of his desire to win trophies.

The attacker brought his five-year stay with Napoli to an end to join the French side on Monday, and he wasted no time in expressing excitement over the Ligue 1 outfit's "project".

"PSG's project really attracted me," he told reporters at a press conference.

"I have the opportunity here to express myself at a club that's on the rise and that will continue to make steps forward. I have the chance to win titles here and I want to play a part in future successes."

Lavezzi also left Serie A because Paris is "a city where everybody wants to live."

"[Javier] Pastore told me a lot of good things about the club and about the city," he said. "We talked about PSG when we were with the national team. I will try to have a close relationship with the fans, just like I had at Napoli."
