Ocampos: No pressure on me

18 August 2012 15:54

New Monaco signing Lucas Ocampos says he feels 'no pressure' to live up to his 15 million euro-price tag after moving from River Plate.

The 18-year-old left Argentina to join the Ligue 2 side, despite a host of top European clubs expressing an interest in the youngster.

But the Argentine under-17 international believes he has made the right choice in signing for Monaco.

"No (there is no pressure on me)," he told France Football. "I have come here to play. I have taken no interest in the transfer fee. I want to show the fans my talent.

"I know I'm going to be compared to the greats of this club, but that should not influence me on the pitch.

“Monaco is a beautiful city and the club are one of the biggest in Europe. My dream has always been to come and play in Europe.

"It is not a regression for me to come and play in Ligue 2. I played in the Argentine second division last season with River.

"This is an opportunity to continue my development and get the club back in Ligue 1."
