Cape Town - Italian midfielder Marco Verratti has revealed that he dreams of claiming the Champions League trophy with Paris Saint-Germain.
The 24-year-old has been attracting interest from a number of top
European clubs, but after signing a five-year deal last year he is
focused on achieving big things in Paris.
PSG take a 4-0 lead into the second leg of their Champions League
last-16 tie with Barcelona on Wednesday, and Verratti is hoping to go
all the way this season.
Speaking to Stade 2, Verratti said: "I want to stay. I am part of a project and there are not many like this one in Europe.
"My dream is to win the Champions League here with PSG."
Verratti went on to praise PSG manager Unai Emery, who has shown
faith in him, adding: "I must thank the coach because he always made me
confident enough to play - that was the only way I was going to get back
into the swing of things.
"Now I feel good and I can play three matches in a week without
physical problems or fatigue. In modern football, the most important
thing is to be physically fit."
Kick off is at 21:45.
