Danilo Pereira recounted some of his early takeaways from ongoing first season with Paris Saint-Germain.
Pereira joined PSG from FC Porto over the recent summer transfer window on a one-year loan agreement. The Portuguese midfielder has since gone on to be a rotational player for the team in all competitions, which has included playing time minutes in this season’s Champions League knockout stage.
As Pereira detailed during his talk with PSG TV, it went fairly quickly for him to join PSG from Porto, but he is much pleased with how his season has gone so far.
“It’s true, everything happened very quickly and I arrived at the heart of an intense period, with the league already having started and the team needing to play a huge number of matches,” Pereira said.
Pereira much credits his PSG teammates for helping him assimilate to playing in a new league.
“Off of the pitch, the team welcomed me really well and that made me very happy,” Pereira said.
“I arrived into a very solid squad, where everyone was really united. It’s a very nice squad and we can train and have a lot of fun. Those on the outside don’t often get this impression, but I think it’s a very united squad. And you have been able to see that too in the more complicated matches, where we have been able to react and turn situations around thanks to this solidarity between us.”
Pereira has so far totaled for 19 appearances in Ligue 1 play this season. The PSG midfielder remains a vital player for the team off the bench.
