PSG midfielder Cabaye: I left the best competition in the world

PSG midfielder Yohan Cabaye has explained his decision to leave Newcastle United in January.

Cabaye declared the Premier League the best competition in the world.

"I really liked playing in another league and discovering another culture," Cabaye, a Ligue 1 winner with previous club Lille, told

"Playing in the best league at the moment, it was a real discovery for me. I loved it, I enjoyed it a lot.

"The club, the supporters were great for me but when a club like Paris Saint-Germain wants you and does everything to have you, it's difficult not to accept it. It allows me to come and play to win titles like the French league, we're in the League Cup final and of course we're still in the race for the Champions League.

"For a football player, these are very important decisions to make. I didn't hesitate in coming here."
