PSG signing Motta explains Inter Milan departure

PSG signing Thiago Motta has explained why he left Inter Milan.

The Nerazzurri had stated repeatedly that they wanted to keep the midfielder, but he completed a transfer deadline day move to France.

"I am very happy to be here, in an ambitious and prestigious side like Paris Saint-Germain," said the player in his press conference.

"I'm also pleased to be reunited with old friends and am extremely motivated. I asked Inter President Moratti to give me this opportunity to join Paris Saint-Germain, as there comes a time in which a player has to have a change of scenery.

"This was a chance I really wanted to take. There were no problems with Inter, as I always got on well with all the Coaches I worked with and playing here is a privilege. Coming to Paris was a personal and professional choice.

"I won everything there was to win with the Nerazzurri and now I want to do the same with PSG."
