Video: ‘I Needed a New Experience, a New Environment, Something New’ – Meunier on His Departure From PSG

Thomas Meunier spent four seasons with Paris Saint-Germain. However, the right-back left the capital club this past summer, after his contract ended. 

After deciding to end his venture with Les Parisiens and not extend his contract for two months to participate in the restart of UEFA Champions League knockout stages in Lisbon Portugal, the Belgium international decided to join Borussia Dortmund. 

Ahead of the German club’s matchday three group stage match against Club Brugge, Meunier elaborated with the media on his decision to join Dortmund.

“I needed a new experience, a new environment, something new, just. That’s what I discovered here when I signed for Borussia. There is only one thing missing: the fans and their incredible tifos. It is also part of what convinced me to sign here at Borussia. I’m quite happy with my playing time,” Meunier said.  

“I’m back on track after almost seven months of absence because I had the coronavirus and then I couldn’t train with PSG again. I only trained in late July and got directly injured. I get the sensations back, the legs are good, the heart is good and we see it with the results of the team. I think I am adding a bit of my stone to this defensive balance. I find pleasure with colleagues with whom I enjoy playing, and that is the most important thing.”
