Mamadou Sakho has explained why he moved to Liverpool last month.
The former PSG captain admits he turned down several rivals offers to move to the Reds.
"Of course coming here was a big step for me," Sakho told liverpoolfc.com. "I'd been with PSG from the age of 12 but there comes a time in every player's life when you have to make some career choices.
"I had achieved everything I had wanted to do with Paris Saint-Germain. We had won the title, and I made the decision a while ago that I wanted to take on something else.
"I knew I wanted to experience a different culture and learn new things and when Liverpool came in for me I was easily convinced. I was happy to leave in the end.
"It's all going well for me here so far. I've settled in quickly. I left Paris to join an ambitious club and I'm very excited about the project here.
"It was an impulse to leave PSG. There are so many new players coming into the club but they didn't push me out. It was all about me wanting to go out and compete.
