Pastore ready for title fight

17 August 2012 19:45

Javier Pastore admits there are high expectations of Paris Saint-Germain after the club made several high-profile signings.

The Argentina international made 33 appearances in Ligue 1 for the club last season, as they finished runners-up to the division's surprise packets Montpellier.

Speaking to the club's website, the 23-year-old considered the expectations fans have of the team this season.

"This season, we are expected to win every game," Pastore said.

"We didn't take our opportunities in the opening game, but the first match of the season is always difficult.

"We need to be calmer, more patient and confident in our play and travel to Ajaccio (on Sunday) with the idea of fighting for the title from the start."

Pastore also spoke about his experiences last year and his hopes for the coming campaign.

"Since I arrived, there have been a lot of changes at Paris Saint-Germain. The club is expanding rapidly and I'm proud to be a part of the project," he said.

"We have an excellent squad, armed to achieve greatness, which means winning Ligue 1 and doing well in the Champions League. That's what I want, and they're also the ambitions of the club.

"The main reason I came to France was because Paris Saint-Germain is growing every day. The club is building for a glorious future, both on and off the pitch."
