Matuidi: 'Can win Champions with Juve'

Blaise Matuidi confesses he left Paris Saint-Germain for Juventus because he could "win the Champions League here," rather than with his old side.

Matuidi moved from PSG in the summer of 2017 to join the Bianconeri in a €25m deal, and has since played an integral part in the club’s ongoing success.

“Coming to Juve was a step forward, a logical choice to further my career. All this without offending PSG. It’s a great club, but I feel this team is particularly suited to me.

“Here there is everything to allow me do my best. At Juve I can have the ambition to win the Champions League,” the Frenchman told RMC Sport radio.

Matuidi has made 108 appearances and scored eight goals in all competitions for The Old Lady.

He's been capped 84 times by France.
