The former AS Roma goalkeeper completed his transfer to the Stadio Via del Mare this week and turned down the chance to join the French giants.
“It’s true, I spoke to Leonardo quite a few times, because he wanted to explain his project for PSG,” confessed Julio Sergio.
“Paris Saint-Germain wanted me, but I’d already given my word to Lecce and Coach Eusebio Di Francesco.
“I am glad that I chose Lecce, as Andrea Bertolacci spoke very highly of the atmosphere at this club and I received a warm welcome.
“Clearly it is going to be a very difficult campaign, but first of all we must try to give our all on the pitch.”
