PSG midfielder Menez: I had to leave Roma for sake of career

Jeremy Menez says he had to quit AS Roma for PSG for the sake of his career.

He completed his €8m transfer this week after failing to really connect with the Giallorossi supporters.

"Roma remains a good experience for me during which I forged a close friendship with Philippe Mexes and Francesco Totti.

"They are great champions and great men who helped me to progress," said the 24-year-old.

"Paris Saint-Germain was my destiny. This club is going into a new dimension and it was a turning point for my own career too.

"Signing for PSG was a sentimental choice, but above all a professional one. I think our mutual ambitions come together at the right moment.

"I want to fly higher and so do PSG."
