Following the 43 million Euros record breaking transfer from US Palermo, Pastore has already started to enjoy the support at Parc des Princes and has promised to do much more for the capital club.
In an interview to French sports daily, L’Equipe, the Argentine international was quoted as saying, “Yes I am here to be a champion.” With many players shying to say these words the Argentine Prodigy is not reluctant in expressing his confidence.
The 22-year-old said that his adjustment at Parc des Princes was smooth much thanks to Nene, Jeremy Menez and Kevin Gameiro. “I need to integrate into the team and improve my game forward by being present near the surface,” said the South American playmaker.
Javier Pastore scored his first goal in the red and blue jersey against Brest with a magnificent play set by Jeremy Menez. Following his arrival at Parc des Princes, the Cordoba native has been the author of four assists and a goal already. After displaying his talents on French and Luxemburg grounds, EL Flaco would have quelled the doubts of his 43 million Euros worth.
The former Huracan man won 100,000 followers on social network Facebook since his arrival at PSG, taking his total fan following to 267,000 fans. With just 80,000 fans remaining, the former Palermo man would topple the fan following of Olympique de Marseille midfielder, Mathieu Valbuena. It is only a matter of time before Javier Pastore becomes Ligue 1’s most popular man on the web.
Paris Saint-Germain coach Antoine Kombouare sees the talented Pastore as his trump card and is counting on him to shine in the UEFA Europa League and help them accomplish their lofty ambitions set for 2011/12 campaign.
