The Cameroon international talks what it means to be a French Ligue 1 champion and his favorite match of the season.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is set to play in the Africa Cup of Nations representing Cameroon.
But before he leaves, he wants to talk how much he loves his club Paris Saint-Germain.
“I am very proud of this title and to play for this club. It’s an honor to champion,” he told the club’s official website.
“Even if the club has won it a lot in recent years, this will always be a very special trophy for me and I am very happy.”
“We should have a little more respect for this achievement,” he added.
“Unfortunately, the recent defeats have tarnished it a little. But we are looking towards the future and we know that we had a very good season.”
“We won 29 matches, have great stats, scoring over 100 goals. You have to keep that in mind, hold your head high and be proud to be champion,” he continued.
“In the Coupe de France against Dijon at the Parc des Princes. When the whole stadium chanted my name, it was really very touching, incredible to see the passion of the supporters.”
“The atmosphere at the Parc is always special, I feel it and it’s incredible. The match at home to Liverpool was also crazy for all Parisians,” he said.
“We won at home and it was a great performance. I always think winning at home creates a special bond.”
